Problems with making openerp 7 work with Eclipse

I followed the steps to open the OpenERP 7 folder as a project in Eclipse.

I already installed PyDev, and I am using Python Interpreter version 2.7.

When I opened purchase.py, it gave me errors on some import lines. Upon further research, I found that I have to add external libraries from Project > Properties > PyDev - PYTHONPATH > External Libraries > Add Source Folder.

Example: Error at import pytz, so I added the pytz folder inside OpenERP7>Sever>server

However that did not fix the problem. When I tried to Run the purchse.py file, it gave me this error:

"ImportError: Bad magic number in C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenERP 7.0-20140202-002512\Server\server\os.pyc"

I researched and it said I should delete the .pyc file and build again, however that only made it do the same error on another .pyc file.

I am running Eclipse as an Administrator, and I am running the correct version of th Python Interpreter (which are the two problems suggested to be linked to the "Bad magic number" error I faced earlier.

What am I doing wrong, and how can I fix these issues?
