Description

Hello,

trying to laod an ecw raster, qgis-dev reports, that ecw is not a supported raster format.
The problem occurs in the osgeo4w installation since gdal 1.9. (under 1.7.4 and gdal 1.8, no problems loading ecw)

1.9.0.0 Gdal-ecw support in the lib category is installed.
The SDK 4.1 ecw dll are copied in the system 32 folder, also in the C:\\OSGeo4W\\bin\\gdalplugins\\1.9 folder.

What is the problem?

Thanks for help.

Gerhard

Try

gdalinfo --formats

from the osgeo command line. The ecw format should e listed (if you have copied the necessary dll libraries). If it is listed then be patient a little, a necessary update needs to be made also in qgis (beside gdal).
