There is effectively a license issue with ECW layers.  This is why we 
removed this library from the self-installer and from the Web site.  We 
are now only distributing the ECW FGS plug-in.  You have to read the 
license on the Erdas Web site at http://www.ermapper.com/ to verify if 
you meet the criterias to use the library free of charge.  If yes you 
have to compile this library by yourself.

Sorry for this inconvenient.
