OSGeo4W error - The procedure entry point - NCSEcw.dll

There are a few posts with a simular error but none with this particular dll. When I try to run a gdal executable from the command line or try to open the OSGeo4W shell I get the following error...

OSGeo4W error - The procedure entry point - NCSEcw.dll

In the terminal I get the error...

ERROR 1: Can't load requested DLL: C:\OSGeo4W\bin\gdalplugins\gdal_ECW_JP2ECW.dll 127: The specified procedure could not be found.

There are no duplicate dlls in the OSGeo4W folder. I have also deleted the OSGeo4W folder and reinstalled. Still get the same error. It also appears that Pathfinder Office has the same dll, but it's in a different directory. The system worked great until a couple of weeks ago with both Pathfinder and OSGeo4W installed. I'm not sure what has changed since.

Any help is appreciated!


OSGEO4W has upgraded to GDAL 1.11, but QGIS 2.2 not; causing the version conflict. The dll should have the same date as the GDAL exe files. I described here how to downgrade the ecw driver:

How to change GDAL version in QGIS to get ECW import to work

The GDAL utilities should always be called from within the OSGEO4W Shell, or the SDKShell provided by the gisinternals builds.

If you don't need ECW support, you could simply delete or move the dll.
