Invoice try out and delete

I'm trying out the OpenErp 7. I have created an initial inventory with products, but the inventory is not finished yet and is not validated. Then I tied out the customer invoice. I have created one, but I want to delete it. I installed the Account_cancel module, checked out the Accounting > Journals > Allow canceling entries box. But I still can't delete the invoice. When I try to delete it I get the following:

You cannot delete an invoice which is not draft or cancelled. You should refund it instead.

Also I have tried a Customer refund too. There I can't delete it either and I get the following warning:

You cannot delete an invoice which is not draft or cancelled. You should refund it instead.

How could I delete the two entries? Also probably until the invoicing will be OK, I will have to try the invoicing so I might delete some of the try out invoices too. Thank you for your help.

The thing is, you can not delete an invoice or any other operation in OpenERP.You might cancel it (which in your operations has the same effect as deleting it) but can not delete it. One of the reasons for not allowing the deletion of invoices, is audit. From an accounting point of view, you need to control all invoices created by the system
