Re: ERDAS IMAGINE 2018 unable to connect to Google Earth

Hi Giuseppe,

 

Do you have installed both 32-bit and 64-bit GE? To make it run in ERDAS IMAGINE 2018 (64-bit) you need to have also 64-bit GE app installed.

 

I have Google Earth Pro v. 7.3.1.4507 64-bit and 32-bit installed and they are working fine. Maybe try to update to this version.

 

 

Kind Regards,

You might also try starting Google Earth and then clicking the Connect button. Some versions of GE Pro would not automatically start (and some versions do not follow the same communication protocols).

 

Cheers

After the installation of the 32 bit of GE it works. Thank you very much!
