OpenERP Client Installation

The Windows client installation is very simple. There are 6 stages :

  1. Welcome message.

  2. GPL Licence Acceptation

  3. Shortcut in the Start menu.

  4. Creation of a 'Start' icon on the desktop

  5. Confirmation Choices

  6. Automatic installation

You have to install, configure and run the OpenERP Server before using the OpenERP Client. The client needs the server to run. You can install the server application on your computer, or on an independent server accessible by network.

Downloading the OpenERP client

The OpenERP client can be downloaded from the OpenERP website's download page

Installing the OpenERP client

CLick on the executable installation file you've just downloaded and select the installation path.


Starting the OpenERP client

The installation program creates shortcuts in the main program menu and on the desktop. Be sure to have an OpenERP Server running somewhere (on your computer or on a distant server) to be able to use the Client software.
