Why doesn't Google Earth functionality work in ERDAS IMAGINE 2016?

Why doesn't Google Earth functionality work in ERDAS IMAGINE 2016?


Google Earth has to be manually launched and kept open along with ERDAS IMAGINE 2016 in order for the Google Earth functionalities with ERDAS IMAGINE to work.


The latest versions of Google Earth will not connect to ERDAS IMAGINE. Installing an earlier version of baseline Google Earth will solve this problem. Please try using Google Earth version or earlier. The installers for version of Google Earth and Google Earth Pro can be downloaded from the links below.


Google Earth v7.1.5.1557 (baseline version)

Google Earth Pro v7.1.5.1557

There seems to be some problem with that particular version which we are aware of and have plans to work on. 


You should be able be able to work with Google Earth versions v7.1.7.2602 and v7.1.5.1557.

Thanks, That works. I had to find a version that didn't update. It makes sense now that the most recent Google Earth update has made it non functional.
