I have installed OSGeo4W following this: Installing QGIS with FileGDB?

Now I have QGIS Desktop 3.8.3 and gdal-filegdb 2.4.1-1 installed on windows 10.

I open directory that include the following file extensions: gdbindexes, gdbtable, gdbtablx, spx, atx, freelist , selecting ESRI FileGDB as described here too Installing File Geodatabase (*.gdb) support in QGIS?

Error "Invalid data source" is displayed.

How to open these files in QGIS?

    [Windows 10] Layer>Add Layer>Add Vector Layer>Source Type 'Directory' OpenFileDB then go to the folder xxx.gdb and load that in you will get an option to load points, lines, polygons in separate layers – Mapperz Sep 16 '19 at 16:00
  • What actually solved was renaming the folder from myfoldername to myfoldername.gdb Thank you for this hint – GabrieleMartini Sep 17 '19 at 7:36

Finally this is the procedure that works:

  1. Install QGIS and gdal-filegdb as described here Installing QGIS with FileGDB?
  2. Make sure the directory name ending is .gdb (renaming the directory solved the issue in my case)
  3. Open the directory as described here Installing File Geodatabase (*.gdb) support in QGIS? (in my case it works both selecting type ESRI FileGDB and OpenFileGDB)
