v17 v18 11 11 The GDAL developers find it more convenient to [BuildingOnWindows build with makefiles] and the [http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd9y37ha(vs.80).aspx Visual Studio NMAKE] utility. Maintaining a parallel set of project files for GDAL is too much work, so there are no full project files directly available from the maintainers. 12 12 13 There are very simple project files available since GDAL/OGR 1.4.0 that just invoke the makefiles for building, but make debugging somewhat more convenient. These are the makegdal71.vcproj and makegdal80.vcproj files in the GDAL root directory. See [http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/wiki/MakeFileProjects Using Makefile Projects] for details. 13 . 14 14 15 15 Occasionally other users do prepare full project files, and you may be able to get them by asking on the [http://lists.maptools.org/mailman/listinfo/gdal-dev/ gdal-dev list]. However, I would strongly suggest you just use the NMAKE based build system. With debugging enabled you can still debug into GDAL with Visual Studio.
