This package contains all the required files to successfully run MapServer and GDAL related applications on Windows.
The files are organized according to the following directory layout:
In order to run the utility programs the compiled dll-s should be available to load during the execution.
Therefore the PATH environment parameter should contain the full path to /bin directory of the package or the dlls in this directory should be copied into the directory from which the application (executable) is running
Some of the GDAL/OGR drivers/data sources have been compiled as plugin dlls located in the \bin\gdal\plugins subdirectory.
When executing the GDAL/OGR related applications the plugins should be available to load by the driver manager. For this reason the corresponding dll-s should be copied into a \gdalplugins subdirectory from where the application executable is running.
As an alternative solution the GDAL_DRIVER_PATH could also be set to point to the location of the plugin dll-s.
Note: When using the Oracle and SDE plugins be sure that the client libraries have been installed in the environment previously.
The mapserver plugin dll-s can be found in the \bin\ms\plugins subdirectory.
In order to use the plugins you have to modify the mapfile according to the following example:
Note: When using the Oracle and SDE plugins (Win32 packages only) be sure that the client libraries have been installed in the environment previously.
