I've verified this is working with 3.6.2 on Windows. Sadly, I haven't had success with 3.8 yet. It builds fine, but the crashes as soon as I try to access a server. I haven't had time to dig into it yet and find out why. Is it imperative that this work with 3.8? I've added support for building the GDAL driver (not the OGR driver yet) to SVN head. I'll also add a wiki page on building this on windows.

Next tasks - try the OGR driver and attempt to update everything to 3.8

Question: If we make it go with 3.8 would there ever be any interest in returning to a back level version?

I've turned to ncWMS ( as a solution to accessing OpenDAP data as I found it to be a more flexible solution. This means I've stopped looking at the GDAL support for OpenDAP for now. Thanks for your efforts!

Ok - I've removed arjendk@… from the CC. Further, the OGR DODS driver now builds on win32 against libdap 3.6.2.

I'll continue looking into the 3.8 problems...

The Win32 OPeNDAP driver now builds against libdap3.8, although there's a problem with the driver itself (on both windows and linux) which I've noted here:

As such, I'm going to close this ticket.
