I installed the most recent OSGeo4W with QGIS 1.8.0 and GDAL 1.9.2 on my Windows 7 PC.

I can load an ESRI geodatabase (.gdb file) and I can get the window "Select vector layers to add". When I click on any of the layers, however, I get the message "qgis.exe has stopped working"

Any idea where the problem might be?
