Ah, ok, this is why I asked.  I would encourage you to file a ticket
against OSGeo4W.  I will aim to upgrade the gdal-ecw package to work
with the new GDAL 1.9 package (gdal).  With luck I could do this over
the weekend.

With all due respect, if you had explained the problem was
specifically with OSGeo4W to start I might have already had a plugin
built for you.

If you find a GDAL 1.9 ECW plugin build from other sources you could drop it in:


This will only work safely if the plugin is built with the same version of MSVC
as GDAL 1.9 (Visual Studio 2008 in this case).
