In __openerp__.py "data" tag should be as follow .

'data': [

if your view file is in sub folder then

'data': [

I'm assuming you already checked the file location and made sure that the __openerp__.py file is up to date and correct? Did you supply the right tag for the XML file (i.e. in the "data" tag )?
