netcdf4 can be used for windows contrary to the slides contents. I found the following instructions which worked well for me on

    http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/mailing_lists/archives/netcdfgroup/2008/msg00250.html


      Starting from

      http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf/docs/faq.html#windows_netcdf4

      download


      ftp://ftp.unidata.ucar.edu/pub/netcdf/contrib/win32/netcdf-4.0_dlls_snapshot2008092909.zip
      ftp://ftp.unidata.ucar.edu/pub/netcdf/contrib/win32/5-181-win-vs2005.zip

      (or wherever it points to - im sure there will be updates)

      Unzip those and copy the following dlls to a directory in your PATH or
      LD_LIBRARY_PATH:

      Netcdf4 DLLs:
      netcdf.dll

      HDF5 DLLs:
      hdf5_hldll.dll
      hdf5dll.dll

      (also see http://www.hdfgroup.uiuc.edu/windows/faq.html)

      Go to ftp://ftp.hdfgroup.org/lib-external/ and get the szip and zlib DLLS. I
      took

      ftp://ftp.hdfgroup.org/lib-external/szip/2.1/bin/windows/szip21-vs2005-enc.zip
      ftp://ftp.hdfgroup.org/lib-external/zlib/1.2/bin/windows/?? (missing - i have
      reported to THG)

      Or get zlib from http://www.winimage.com/zLibDll/.

      unzip to get:

      szlibdll.dll

      zlib1.dll

      These also depend on Microsoft DLLs (typically found in C:\WINDOWS\system32),
      but they will already be in your path:
      kernel32.dll
      msvcr80.dll
      msvcrt.dll
      ntdll.dll

      All of these DLLs are pure win32 "unmanaged code", as opposed to .Net "managed
      code". win32 will work on both 32 bit and 64 bit system

Interesting
