For windows, you can download from this location : http://www.egenix.com/products/python/mxBase/

For Linux : you can execute this command : sudo easy_install egenix-mx-base

Email : info@acespritech.com
Skype : acespritech
Blog : acespritechblog.wordpress.com

Why add your contact information into answer? good answer, but I guess you shouldn't add that information here, but you got my vote. I would like to add into your answer in archlinux already has this package `pacman -S python2-egenix-mx-base` installs the package on system or you can use `pip install egenix-mx-base`.

Another way to solved this,

follow the below step : 1) download package form download.egenix.com downloads.egenix.com/python/egenix-mx-base-3.2.3.win32-py2.6.prebuilt.zip?baseurl=http%3A%2F%2Fdownloads.egenix.com%2Fpython%2F&product=egenix-mx-base&version=3.2.3&platform=win32&python=py2.6.prebuilt.zip 2)extract the file 3) copy the mx folder form the extracted file to C:\Program Files\OpenERP 6.1-1\server 4) restart

great, it works!

You can install mx module by typing at the command prompt:

pip install egenix-mx-base

pip install egenix-mx-base
for Windows:

python -m pip install egenix-mx-base

if you do not have pip:

just install it by downloading get-pip.py from https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py

then run it with:

python -m get-pip.py

hotel\hotel.py line 24 : from mx import DateTime

"No module named mx " --> a module named mx does not exist.

know that the mx python library is available.

psycopg 2.4.2+ resolve your problem.

thank's for your answer Can you explain a little how to install psycop2.4.2 in my windows?

Hi, we have a Windows all-in-one installation v6.1 running on a separate machine to our v7. On the v6.1 installation, having followed the comments here above successfully, we still get the "ImportError: No module named mx" error when installing modules. We even installed the egenix mx modules but still the same error. It looks as though OpenERP v6.1 does not realise that the above modules have been installed. (Python 2.5)

Any ideas where we are going wrong or how to tell OpenERP that the modules mx are actually installed?

You should ask the hotel module developer, since the module developer (to the best of my knowledge Hotel module is not part of the OpenERP core) has more information on how it is configured. Having said that, you do not have the mx python module installed in your server
