Frank, thank you very much for the answer.
Yes, I use the "ogrinfo" application that comes with the FWTools installation.
( Thanks by the way for this wonderful set of tools )
For my own application, I just built the GDAL library with
default configuration options, just changing the compiler
version to 1500 (stating that I'm using Visual Studio 2008)
Ok, let me apply the changes that you proposed.
