Installation Tips

If you are upgrading to a newer version of EndNote:

  • Backup custom styles, filters, connection files and libraries the including .DATA folder before uninstalling the previous version.

  • It is recommended that you uninstall the older version before you install the new version. Never run two versions of EndNote on the same computer.

Which version of EndNote do I use?

The version of EndNote you need, depends on your computer hardware and software. Check EndNote: Compatibility and System requirements for your computer.

Possible installation problem

A common installation problem in EndNote is the non-appearance of the EndNote tools in Word. EndNote X1 and later versions have a new Configure EndNote Utility which should make this easier to fix. To access this utility go to the Windows Start button, Programs menu, EndNote's Menu and then select Configure EndNote.
