Just testing Odoo to see if we should use it.
Am trying to install an Australian Chat of Accounts module via the user interface.
The Application is installed on a Win PC using Bitnami.
After logging in as Administrator with "Technical Features" active there are extra menu options for Module but nothing like Add, Install, etc.
The new module was pasted into the Oddo Addon folder which is found "….\Odoo\apps\odoo\Lib\site-packages\odoo-8.0_20150423-py2.7.egg\openerp\addons".
When I tried creating a new menu option "Module Import".
Settings->Technical->User Interface->MenuItems  Edit "Settings/Modules"  Add submenu called "Import" with "Action: ir.actions.act_window" and "Module Import"  Save the changes and refresh the window (You can see a new submenu called "Import")  Settings->Modules->Import  Select the downloaded zip file (attachment_size_limit-188.8.131.52.zip) then click "Import Module"
BUT, when i get to "Action: ir.actions.act_window" there is no "Module Import" option even after searching.
Also at this point the added module does not show up in the module list but that would be due to it not being added to the data base I am assuming. This needs to be done with the "Module import".
So what happens now to get this module installed as without the Australian setup, there is no point to the application.
I did a test and found no problem with the installation (see attachments).
You can test it here: https://au-accounting.erponline.vn (login with admin/admin).
So, there should be problems with your Odoo installer. Or… I am not sure :)

You don't have to add that Module Import menu item. Just execute the module list update by navigating to Settings > Modules > Update Modules List.
On Linux, you also may need to set correct permissions for the module folder and its contents that you pasted to the addons folder.
