In QGIS v2.6, I was able to save a vector layer as ESRI FileGDB. However, in v2.8 and v2.10 this no longer seems available.

Am I missing something?

Or why is this no longer available in the standard installation for Windows?

    It depends on what driver you are using as to whether you can read or write to a FGDB. This answer may shed some light: File Geodatabase (*.gdb) support in QGIS – Get Spatial Aug 17 '15 at 16:28
  • My company's IT department is happy to install QGIS from a standard installation, but they wouldn't go into such advanced installation instructions. Secondly when I tick QGIS and the FileGDB lib, it tries to install a whole bunch of dependent libs, and then halfway through it falls over telling me the download is incomplete. Is there any way I can install just this FGDB lib after I have fully installed QGIS 2.10 the normal way? – TallArnie Aug 18 '15 at 15:40

It is possible to read, edit and create features of a FileGDB in QGIS 3 (maybe also QGIS 2). For Windows you need an OSGeo4W-Installation with the optional FileGDB-Driver (not OpenFileGDB).
