Error importing TIFF

con20or
I know this has been posted many times, but I have not found a solution onkline yet. The suggestion is to update or to  revert to 3.3, the academic version.

I am having problems importing satellite imagery into ILWIS 3.08.04, can you suggest any alternative methods? I have tried with a Landsat8 and a RapidEYE. I received the following error message.

ILWIS38\\Resources\DEF\datum.def was not found

Hello,

There are two ways to Import a TIFF file in ILWIS 3.8.4: through the
ILWIS driver and through the GDAL driver. I have noticed that we missed
supplying the DATUM.DEF file when ILWIS 3.8.4 was released, which is
required by the ILWIS TIFF import. I have attached the missing file to
this e-mail. Just save it there where it is expected (in the
"Resources\Def" subdirectory of the ILWIS installation folder). This
will re-enable the ILWIS TIFF driver.
However, you may still want to try both drivers when importing a file,
for example the ILWIS TIFF driver does not support the LZW compression
and the BigTIFF format. But getting the data-type and the projection
right may be more successful with the ILWIS TIFF driver.

Thanks - the DEM.def file did the job for importing smaller Landsat5 through ILWISS TIFF Import. I can import the larger Landsat8 through the GDAL driver.

Hi.
When I want to import Geotiff files in ILWIS 3.8.4, I face this starnge problem that the import menu doesn't have any options to select from! It looks like this picture:


I know it must have the followng options to choose from: ILWIS/ GDAL/ Postgres/Aster/ActiveXdata objects/OGC

But mine only has the first option (e.g ILWIS), and I cant choose my Geotiff file from the GDAL option.
I have actually worked with this option couple of months ago and I had no problem, but now suddenly they are gone!!

I appreciate any help from you. Tanx
