There are many posts in different forums about people having trouble reading File GDBs in QGIS 2.2, but no real solutions. Is there any word on a resolution to this problem?
I am using QGIS 2.2 (installed via the OSGeo4W online installer) on Windows 8.1 64-bit. I can confirm that the gdal-filegdb (version 1.11.0-1) library is installed, as reported by the OSGeo4W setup.
The FileGDB option does not appear at all in the Directory source type list, and if I go and choose the .gdb folder anyway I get an error about it not being a valid data type.
And please don't suggest compiling QGIS from scratch with the gdal-filegdb library linked -- that might fly on Linux but it is not a practical alternative on Windows, even assuming I did know how to do it.
