Could anyone please help on how to take the backup and restore to another computer, I have tried the following methods I have all my installations on Windows 7 OS 1. Using the OpenERP front-end screen --> Manage database --> Backup 2. Backup database from PGA admin and restore the data into another instance

In both above methods , application is not correctly working, it is throwing error something like client widget is null and also I do not see all the components in the restore

Can you please provide detailed steps on how to take the backup correctly and install on another machine

Your help is greatly appreciated

Thank you, Abilash

Are both servers running the same version of OpenERP? (OpenERP 7 downloaded in August isn't the same version of OpenERP 7 downloaded in September)

After restore, try running the openerp server with command line arguments to upgrade the database: ./openerp-server -c <location of your configuration file> -d <name of the database you restored> -u all (there is probably a difference between the versions of OpenERP you are moving from and to)
