I am working on a project where I am attempting to use GDAL and ArcObjects together in the same project. Although the project itself is nothing more than a toolbar in ArcMap, I would like to use some GDAL based raster libraries developed for other non-ArcMap projects that offer a SIGNIFICANT performance boost over the equivalent ArcObject based methods.
I've been getting all types of crazy errors when mixing the two. However, when I execute the same chunks of code in localized (either GDAL alone or ArcObjects alone) projects, everything works as expected.
Can ArcObjects and GDAL co-exist in the same project? Any tips to avoid complications?
FYI - I am using the C# GDAL bindings distributed with FWTools 2.4.7.
