View error - can't find field...

I've recently restored a database from a Ubuntu instance into a Windows instance. Both were running under OpenERP V7, but when I try to use the database in the Windows instance I get the following message:

View Error : Can't find field 'fetchmail_clain' in the following view parts composing the view of objet model 'sale.config.settings': * crm_claim settings. Either you wrongly customized this view, or some modules bringing those views are not compatible with your current data model.

Any clue?

Make sure that the same modules that were installed on Ubuntu are installed on Windows. Note that if you were using the nightly debs on Ubuntu you would have had all the core modules/apps available locally. That is not the case if you used the Windows installer. When you install an app, it downloads and installs it.

Thank tyou Lorenzo. I've checked, and there were indeed differences. Strangely, some of the modules were marked for removal, and when I displayed the information about these modules the system offered me the option to 'cancel the uninstall'... which I did. Both instances now have exactly the same modules installed, but I still get the error.
