using standalone installer only.
When I start, QGIS can't find GRASS (GISBASE), so I manually point it to
"C:\\Program Files\\QuantumGIS\\grass".
Try to load a GRASS raster and now "C:/Users/Darren/Documents/GIS
DataBase/test/PERMANENT/cellhd/comp543" is not a valid or recognized
raster data source".

I had the same issue with QGIS 1.0.2-Kore. Uninstalled QGIS (via control
panel - remove programs) and then installed 1.1.0......
So far everything else seems to be fine (projects open fine, GPS plugin

"is not a valid or recognized raster data source" is/was a typical error message when using an outdated/bugged version of gdal.

Qgis 1.2 should be out in a few days, meanwhile please give a try to the dev version installable trough the osgeo4w installer (I guess you should uninstall first the standalone installer).

Please also report back after testing. Thanks

I'll wait for the 1.2 standalone.
As reported http://forum.qgis.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=4761 installing through the osgeo4w installer seems to address the issue.
Not an option for me as my internet connection is limited. I am entirely dependent on the standalone.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

Ok, I'll close then. Please test qgis 1.2 as soon as it will be out and then reopen the ticket if necessary.
