[Gdal-dev] Problem getting ECW SDK 3.1 working with gdal

Hi Brent,
Well, I'm not sure that's all you did. 

I'm using:
GDAL 1.2.6 (cvs tarball 20050405)
XP SP2 Full Platform SDK
VS.Net 2003 (Version 7.1.3088)
.NET Framework 1.1 (Version 1.1.4322 SP1)

The only Core SDK that I found seems specific to Windows Server 2003. I'm
hesitant to install this on my XPSP2 computer. Is there any danger here? I
haven't installed it and that might be why I still cannot find winhttp.h
anywhere on my computer.

Build.txt does indeed mention the Platform SDK, but only in the section
referring to Visual Studio 6. That's why I didn't install it initially.

              Experience is a wonderful thing
It allows you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.
