Cannot install HRMS in ERP14


I am trying to install HRMS using following command

bench get-app --resolve-deps hrms

But it is failing. Here is the output.

ERROR: Invalid frappe path: erpnext
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.10/dist-packages/bench/utils/", line 73, in is_valid_frappe_branch

The above exception was the direct cause of the following exception:

    raise InvalidRemoteException(f"Invalid frappe path: {frappe_path}") from e

I tried this on two separate PC with same result.

How to solve this?

Hi @YogiYang,

Please check it.
Maybe help you.

Thanks the command

bench get-app hrms

Worked for me. I had to remove --resolve-deps!

But still it is surprising as to why it fails with --resolve-deps?


Yogi Yang

I think, In hrms do not require dependencies and maybe it should be auto-set via the default command.

Thank You!


Actually it does have dependency on payments. If we just bench get-app hrms and then try to install app on site immediately it gives error that payments is missing and installation fails.

This means that there is dependency and the command bench get-app --resolve-deps hrms should really work.


Yogi Yang

Hmm :thinking:

I believe the order of installation is as follows
Bench → payments → erpnext → hrms
I followed this and did not face any issue.
Both HRMS and Payroll working like a charm in v14
