I am running macOS Sierra v10.12.1 on a MacBook Pro.

I have been running the stand alone installation of QGIS 2.14.3 with ecw support successfully in the past.

I downloaded and installed QGIS 2.16.3 from with all the associated packages. This has GDAL 2.1

I also downloaded ERDAS ECW/JP2 SDK v 5.2.1 and copied the file libNCSEcw.dylib to the following location as instructed:

Library/Application Support/GDAL/1.11/Libraries/libNCSEwc.dylib

On starting QGIS and loading a project with an ecw image I get a message informing me that the image is not a supported raster type.

Unfortunately I am not a programmer just an end user. There are 6 of us on a mix of Windows, Linux and Mac OS systems using QGIS.

This problem only seems to affect Mac users after upgrading to QGIS 2.16.x.

I am obviously missing something here, can anyone help please.

Thanks in advance and BR.
