1) Not build but rebuild GDAL with correct flags


2) Rebuild your program linking against GDAL
3) Check if you have symbols database generated (gdal18.pdb file size >20-30MB)
4) Check if GDAL links against Debug C/C++ Run-Tim

dumpbin /ALL python32_d.dll | find /i "msvcr"

5) Execute your program under debugger, try to step in GDALAllRegister()
6) Check if you step into your own program at all
