OSGeo4W not accessing ESRI filegdb

Reported by: wyogeo Owned by: osgeo4w-dev@…
Priority: major Component: Package
Version: Keywords: ogr, filegdb

Description

I downloaded the OSGeo4w GDAL package and installed. I download the latest ESRI filegdb api and copied the files to the plugins directory. I do ogrinfo --formats. That shows FileGDB as a format. However when I try any other command it fails. A ogrinfo -al against the test filegdb here http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/wiki/FileGDB produces no output. The version is 1.9.2 as shown by ogrinfo --version.

You shouldn't actually need to download the filegdb api and place dlls anywhere anymore.

All the needed files to read/write file geodatabases are available through the package gdal-filegdb found in the libs category.

I've installed gdal and gdal-filegdb using the osgeo4w installer and can access that test_fgdb.gdb fine.

Feel free to re-open if this doesn't solve your problem, as something else could be wrong and more troubleshooting is needed =)

NOTE

If you do choose to manually place the ESRI FileGDB dlls into the bin folder, make sure you try with the 2008 and 2010 builds because one may work and they other may not. Also, it may matter to grab the 32-bit dlls, because GDAL from the osgeo4w installer is a 32-bit version I think.
