The problem is that you were in C:\OSGeo4W\bin at the time you
ran gdalinfo.  Executables in the local directory take precidence
over what is at the front of the path.  If you did it from another
location you should see you are running the 1.6.x version.

Thanks for the screen shot - it helps at lot to see exactly what you
were doing in context to diagnose an issue like this.
