Alain, Do you have the GDAL_DRIVER_PATH environment variable set on your Windows system?
C:\>echo %GDAL_DRIVER_PATH% C:\Apps\GDAL\bin\gdalplugins That is what going to make the GDAL dll inside the Python process to find the plugins. GDAL command line tools doesn't need that because they get it from a default path relative to where they are installed ".\gdalplugins".
