It's pretty easy:

1. Connect the EWI via USB.
2. Start Reason.
3. Open Preferences > Control Surfaces.
4. Click 'Add'.
5. Select Manufacturer > Akai.
6. Unfortunately there's no preset for the EWI USB itself. I used Akai LPD8 instead which works fine for me.
7. Select 'EWI-USB' for both In and Out Port.

after you download the Codec pack file, you unzip it to a temporary folder.
Delete some files (Korg's and Behringer's in this example) from folders "Codec" and "Maps" if you dont need it.
To install this codec, please copy the included folders "Codec" and "Maps" to the following directory:

Mac OSX:
Library:Application Support:Propellerhead Software:Remote

Windows XP:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Propellerhead Software\Remote

Windows 7:
c:\ProgramData\Propellerhead Software\Remote
