When creating your database, make sure the Load demonstration data option is not checked.

I actually create the database on the psql command line with: "CREATE DATABASE openerp OWNER openerp;" Can it be done that way?

How to load demo for myself modules only. For example: The demo data of product is 3c products, but my project is not for 3c, os i want to load ourself products to do demo

I also got the same problem. But I solve it by changing the boolean type for demo in table ir_module_module(database using pgadmin). Hope this help.

To generate without demo data, you can use the option `--without-demo`


                disable loading demo data for modules to be installed
                (comma-separated, use "all" for all modules). Requires
                -d and -i. Default is none



So just launch your server with

`openerp-server --without-demo=True`


Then when you create a database from postgres it will not fill it with demo data.
