These notes are for Windows 7 users, connected to the UOCNT network. They may work for staff laptops that are used as the staff-member's principal computer at work, but will not generally work for other laptops. There are separate notes for Mac users. If you use a laptop that is connected to the UC Network at times, but not at other times then see these notes.
For windows 7 users you can install Endnote X7 - from the 'Uninstall or Change a program' box use the left-hand link 'Install a program from the network' and choose 'Thomson Reuters EndNote X7.2.0'. - existing X7 users can upgrade to X7.2 by choosing 'Thomson Reuters EndNote X7.2.0 (upgrade)'
Always back up your EndNote libraries before doing anything major with EndNote.
Before you start, ensure Microsoft Office suite (Word, Excel, Outlook) is closed.
If you have an earlier version of EndNote, you don't need to uninstall it, although it is recommended. The new version will override the old one and you will not lose all your EndNote Library/Libraries saved in the old version.
The download will complete and the download box will disappear. At this stage Endnote will be installing in the background. You can shut down the Control Panel windows. Don't open Word for about 5 minutes, at which stage you should see Endnote X7 in your Start, Programs folder.
If you encounter problems after installing EndNote, see the help given on our problems page.
