So, just to confirm: 163.3 wants gdal201.dll and does not work with gdal202.dll, right?

Can I suggest that future builds support gdal202.dll?

I wanted to import SOSI files, but the plugin available via OSGeo4W Setup depends on gdal202.dll (checked with Dependency Walker).

With bin64\gdal201_x64\gdal201.dllI get

2017-09-12 11:53:08 *** (root)::[Data Source] `Sosifile.sos' not recognized as a supported file format.

With bin64\gdal202_x64\gdal202.dllI get

I have not found older ogr_SOSI.dll.

I can use gdal/ogr2ogr to convert SOSI to GPKG. And I can wish that future builds support gdal202.dll :-)

What was the link you used to get gdal202.dll?

OSGeo4W x64 Installer. I grab gdal and its dependencies from osgeo4w installation and copy them to \bin64. Same for 32bit.

Attached are dll lists and my manifold portable upgrade script. It is very convenient. I also get dlls for pg, mysql,sqlite/spatialite/gpkg.

There's a more comprehensive collection of builds here:

But OSGeo4W is by far the easiest way to go about it.

Yes, we want gdal201.dll. We are looking to add support for other flavors of GDAL. It's a bit unsettling that there are multiple live branches, but fine.

If you don't mind, I'm very curious and would like to learn from your expertise with GDAL.

Is there any specific reason, that is, some new format it adds or a specific bug fix it provides, why you want gdal202.dll? If so, what is that?

Besides SOSI [a classic example of a niche format for which it is useful to have a GDAL dataport] are there formats you must access that are covered by GDAL but not by Radian? If so, what are they?

So far gdal201 worked well.

We do work with Microstation so I went to look if DGN v8 is supported by gdal -

Microstation DGN v8

Available since GDAL 2.2

it would help, but

This driver requires to be built against the (non open source) Open Design Alliance Teigha library.

I do not want to build gdal myself. I have not looked into Teigha yet.
