Further instructions for building MapWinGIS with Visual Studio 2017

I came across a minor pitfall in one of the steps of the tutorial for compiling on VS2017. When downloading from http://gisinternals.com, there are now two categories of stable releases, while there was only one at the time of the tutorial video’s recording. The category to download is “GDAL 2.4.4”, as the " GDAL 3.0.4" category causes errors when building.

The tutorial video: [Tutorial] Compiling MWGis in VS2017

Thanks for pointing this out.
You are right, you need the latest GDAL v2 files.

We are looking for somebody with the time to move MapWinGIS to GDAL v3.
Might you be that person?

Sorry about the very late reply. Yes, I have some time to look at this. I’ll let you know how I get on.

It would be great if you could do this. Just submit a pull request with your changes and we’ll have a look at it.
The biggest challenge with GDAL v3 is that they also moved to PROJ.6 which is using a different approach for the projections. This will involve major changes in MapWinGIS but also in MW5.
