Yes the ECW support is built in the binaries distributed with ms4w.


Thank you for your help, I will try to get this working.  Jpeg2000 offers lots of benefits, and seems to work really well with MapServer (I was using FWTools on Windows before I needed php support), the resolution pyramids in Jpeg2000 avoid the need to use gdaladdo (correct me if I am wrong!), and offer excellent compression as well! 

Many thanks,
