Diagnosis

Solution

To establish a successful ERDAS IMAGINE connection to Google Earth, the Google Earth application must be manually opened before using the Connect to Google Earth button.

 

The latest versions of Google Earth will not connect to ERDAS IMAGINE. Installing an earlier version of Google Earth will solve this problem. Please try using Google Earth version 7.1.5.1557 or earlier. The installers for version 7.1.5.1557 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

The upcoming release i.e., ERDAS IMAGINE 2018, should play along well with the latest versions of Google Earth.
