Odoo for Windows
Each time a new release of Odoo is made, it supplies a complete Odoo for Windows auto-installer for it. This contains all of the components you need – the PostgreSQL database server, the Odoo application server, the GTK application client and the Web client. This Odoo for Windows auto-installer enables you to install the whole system in just a few mouse clicks. The initial configuration is set up during installation, making it possible to start using it very quickly, as long as you do not want to change the underlying code. It is aimed at the installation of everything on a single PC, but you can later connect GTK clients from other PCs to it as well.

Configuring Postgres on Windows
During the installation of Odoo for Windows, you will be asked to provide information for the PostgreSQL connection. It is recommended that you change the username and password for security purposes. The default username/password is shown in the preceding screenshot. These values will be written into the Odoo configuration file. The username and password provided will be the administration credentials for the PostgreSQL database, so be sure to remember them. After the wizard is complete, if you leave Start Odoo checked and then click on Finish, Odoo should open up in your default browser.
