After a clean install of QGIS 2.18.16 64 bit (d473c3071a) standalone installer on Windows 7 SP1 64 bit
the Plugin tab of the Log Message Panel reports:

Failed to load C:/PROGRA~1/QGIS2~1.18/apps/qgis/plugins/globeplugin.dll (Reason: Cannot load library C:/PROGRA~1/QGIS2~1.18/apps/qgis/plugins/globeplugin.dll: Impossibile trovare il modulo specificato.)

though globeplugin.dll is actually in C:/PROGRA~1/QGIS2~1.18/apps/qgis/plugins/

The osgearth-libs (2.7-1) is already installed and I tried to install via OSGeo4W installer also the other osgearth-(bin|dev) packages and osg-(bin|dev|libs) without solve the problem.

Lack of gdal200.dll in installation files.
Workaround: copy it from one of previous versions (i.e. 2.18.6) to folder C:\Program Files\QGIS 2.18\bin

You are right, it works. I added it using the OSGeo4W installer (gdal200dll package).

So it seems an OSGeo4W issue about dependencies of "OSG Earth (libraries)" package: in fact osgEarth.dll in osgearth-libs 2.7-1 (curr) depends on gdal200.dll and in osgearth-libs 2.4-1 (prev) depends on gdal110.dll.

Should I write a bug report in OSGeo4W bug tracker?

  • Resolution set to fixed/implemented
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

osg-libs depends on gdal200dll now.
