The configure script looks for an HDF5 library in several places, if it can't find it in any of the standard locations for shared libraries, which include an hdf5dll file. From the config.log file you sent, it appears that you haven't used the LDFLAGS and CPPFLAGS environment variables to specify where the HDF5 library is installed. There's examples of how to do this with a POSIX-compliant shell such as bash in the instructions for building from source: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/netcdf/docs/getting_and_building_netcdf.html#build_default If you're using a different shell such as csh or tcsh, you'll need to use setenv instead to set LDPATH and CPPFLAGS environment variables. Note that sometimes you also need to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH before running configure, if the installed library is not found from the LDFLAGS variable. If this doesn't fix the problem, please let us know. --Russ > Best, > > George > > > -----Original Message----- > From: Unidata netCDF Support [mailto:address@hidden > Sent: Sunday, May 24, 2015 8:19 PM > To: address@hidden > Cc: address@hidden > Subject: [netCDF #VTI-484586]: configure for netcdf 126.96.36.199 can't find > hdf5dll and exits > > Hi George, > > > curl-7.26.0 > > > > hdf5-1.8.13 > > > > hdf5-1.8.14.tar > > > > netcdf-188.8.131.52 > > > > netcdf-fortran-4.4.2 > > > > README.netcdf > > > > zlib-1.2.8 > > > > > > > > The above versions of curl, zlib, and hdf5 have been built. > > > > > > > > The attempt to build netcdf 184.108.40.206 fails with configure looking for > > hdf5dll > > > > This library does not exist in the builds of the above libraries. > > Are you following these instructions for building with Visual Studio? > > http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/netcdf/docs/winbin.html#msvc-using > > They require using cmake rather than configure.
