[netCDF #ULN-920732]: issues with netCDF library

Hi Avirup,

I'm not sure why the "use typeSizes" statement is in the above
program, because it's not needed.  The "typesizes.mod" file is used
internally by the Fortran-90 netCDF interface, but user programs
should not need to use it or include it.  It's not mentioned in the
NetCDF Fortran-90 Users Guide or used in any of the Fortran-90 example
programs we provide at


Also, I just commented it out and successfully compiled and ran your
example program.  So try deleting it.

There is no typeSizes.lib, so don't worry about that.

The error above should disappear if you remove the unnecessary "use
typeSizes" statement.

If you still have problems, you should note that Unidata currently
doesn't support using the netCDF Fortran-90 library on Windows,
because we don't test it and have difficulty building it under Visual
Studio with a variety of Fortran compilers, as described here:


However, another user has contributed a complete build for Windows,
including Fortran-90, and you might be able to use that.  It is
described here:


That message was just posted yesterday, and we will soon be adding it
to the documentation.
