No, all the Odoo SQL generated(or even hand writing) statements are coded with PostgreSQL in mind. Also there are some used PostgreSQL resources like sequences and indexes that are not exactly in others Database Servers or the syntax is different

* Odoo relies on Psycopg for database access and this library is specific for PostgreSQL.

* The ORM is also PostgreSQL specific.

I am an old VFP developer on ERP

I have moved to 2p since Nov-2014 and started developing with Python on Odoo.

Currently, you can't, as the ORM build in Odoo relies heavily on PostgreSQL. But theoretically it is possible if this ORM has been rewritten more generically to support more database engines, including SQL Server. This is a big project.
