Bug report #8753
Unable to open ESRI personal geodatabase in 2.0
|Affected QGIS version:||2.0.1||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||Easy fix?:||No|

I upgraded to the new release and found I can longer open ESRI personal (not file) geodatabases when I choose to Add Vectors. The choice is no longer available from the file browser's File Types list. This function worked in my earlier installation - 1.8 Lisboa. I am running QGIS 2.0 on Mac OSX 10.8 Mtn Lion on a MacBook Pro (Retina).
Has this functionality been moved somewhere else, or is there something new I must install in order for this to work? I installed GDAL complete and NUMPY, also SCIPY, from KyngChaos.com downloads. Perhaps personal geodatabase import is simply not included in this release? If so, any ideas when it will be supported?
I have inherited many (many) Gb of critical data stored in ESRI personal geodatabases. I have a project colleague who requires access to all the data in this dataset. If the MDB access is no longer included, I need to know so I can make alternate arrangements to get the data into a format he can deal with.
