    • Now in last step we are going to install python libraries and site packages. Fortunately Odoo Source has a text file (requirements.txt) of all the required python packages with name and their version. We just need to pip install this text file using below command.


    python -m pip install -r requirements.txt      
     

    Now restart the odoo services, if you got any error related to python packages, just install this package using pip.

    
    pip install pywin32      
     

    Now we can run Odoo from PyCharm.
