I'm currently trying to do a fresh installation of Odoo v8 based on this tutorial: 


Although I have problems with the step where I have to define Configuration Parameters (Settings ‣ Technical ‣ Parameters ‣ Configuration Parameters). The problem is that I don't have this menu in my installation, the one that comes nearest to that are Company Properties, but I have no idea how to set the value properties for Many2One. Am I even in the right menu or why don't I see the Configuration Parameters menu?

Hello Michael,

That document is quite old,

Menu Settings ‣ Technical ‣ Parameters ‣ Configuration Parameters

is renamed to,

Settings ‣ Technical ‣ Parameters ‣ Company Properties

Ok, then I have a problem if I do it like in the tutorial, as when I want to test for example the Account Payable settings, I get an error message:

File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/openerp/addons/base/res/ir_property.py", line 138, in get_by_record

model, resource_id = record.value_reference.split(',')

ValueError: need more than 1 value to unpack

Anyhow you say that the document is quite old, is there a newer tutorial on how to do a fresh installation of Odoo?



[EDIT]: OK, I guess then I have not made myself clear, I know how to install Odoo, but I'm looking for a configuration manual - as the one that I included in my first post on how to configure Accounting, Warehouses and so on. And does nobody else has the problem with the Company Properties?

I had the same problem. You need to install the 'Admin Technical Features' app to solve this issue and access the parameters.
