Hi Jorge,

thanks for your response.
I have follow your instructions, i.e :
1) install Python (I use Python v.2.7) and numpy-MKL-1.6.1.win32-py2.7
2) install GDAL library. I use gdal-18-1310-core.msi to get GDAL library.
After I have installed it nad go through C:\Program Files\GDAL directory, I can not find python. I thought that the environment has not been binded yet.
maybe the problem is here.
Can you let me know how to build binding between GDAL and python? I try it several times but failed.

Renaming the dll file was a solution suggested by a Windows XP SP2
user. Are you in the same situation? I didn't need to do that using
Windows 7.

About the execution of the bat file, could you please send us the
output? Did you experiment any other problems following the previous

I've responded you in the blog post too. But we can keep the question
in the list (it has a wider audience)
