netcdf-4 support requires to uncomment the following in gdal nmake.opt (hdf4 support is unrelated to netcdf-4/hdf5 - but it doesn't hurt)

# Uncomment the following to enable NetCDF format.

# Uncomment the following to add NC4 and HDF4 support

I noticed that the gdalinfo packed in osgeo4w (both x86 and x64 version) does not correctly open some netcdf4 files I have, and uses the HDF5 driver instead. (Even though netcdf library 4.3.0-1 is packaged in the current osgeo4w64 release). Using the gdalinfo installed via the unofficial python binaries distributed by the Laboratory for Fluorescence Dynamics of the University of California, ( gdalinfo does work correctly on netcdf4 files.

I think this has to do with the issue above, though not sure.

Trying to convert NetCDF dataset to GeoTIFF and get the following error (GDAL 2.1.1, NetCDF 4.3.0):

gdalwarp -ts 360 140 output.tif
ERROR 1: netCDF scanline fetch failed: #-101 (NetCDF: HDF error)
Biomass_v3, band 1: IReadBlock failed at X offset 0, Y offset 0
ERROR 1: GetBlockRef failed at X block offset 0, Y block offset 0

But on the Linux (GDAL 2.1.0, NetCDF 4.4.0) all works fine. Test file:

I can confirm that the issue has been resolved in gdal/ogr 2.20 in Windows thanks to Jef.

Feel free to close.
