Why does my database import on Windows 7 fail with an Ubuntu database?

What I did:

  • I dumped (exported) my OpenERP V7 database on my Ubuntu server, storing it locally on my Windows 7 notebook
  • I installed OpenERP V7 on this local Windows 7 host
  • I imported the OpenERP V7 database locally ... sucessfully, but ...
  • after login to this imported database I got the error message:

" TypeError: ClientWidget is null

http : // localhost : 8069/web/webclient/js?db=V-I3:3235 "

Can you send me hint were to look the reason? ... or what to do about this error in order to avoid it? ...

I really appreciate any response! Thank you in advance

I have precisely the same problem -- export from a working OpenERP 7 installation on Ubuntu 12.04, successful install of OpenERP 7 on Windows 7, apparently successful import of the database to the installation on Windows 7, and then when I actually open the database, the error "TypeError: ClientWidget is null", at least in Firefox. In Chrome I seem to get a slightly different error: "Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'prototype' of null". All options in the left navbar then fail to open, except rightclicking on Settins to see loaded modules in a new tab. Can someone suggest a solution?
