When trying to connect ERDAS IMAGINE to Google Earth with the ‘Google Earth Pro’ version, the warning message “Unable to initialize Google Earth Application” occurs.
To establish a successful ERDAS IMAGINE connection to Google Earth Pro, the baseline Google Earth application must be also installed.
The latest versions of Google Earth may not connect to ERDAS IMAGINE. Installing an earlier version of baseline Google Earth will solve this problem. Please try using Google Earth version 126.96.36.1997 or earlier. The installers for version 188.8.131.527 of Google Earth and Google Earth Pro can be downloaded from the links below.
Here is an update:
ERDAS IMAGINE 2018 (64 bit as well as 32 bit ) has been sucessfully tested in Windows 10 environment with Google Earth Pro version 184.108.40.20632
