Important:      Before you install, close down Office

Close down all Microsoft Office documents and programs.

This includes the desktop version of Microsoft Outlook

Close down any Outlook windows that you have open - including email, calendar, people, and tasks windows.

To download, you will need your Federation University username and password (the same details you use to access Federation email, Moodle, and other resources).

Important: Do not double-click the zip file then double-click the installer - this extracts and runs the installer from a temporary folder without the license, resulting in a 30-day trial installation).

The above zip file for Windows contains two (2) files. You need to extract or copy both these files to a separate folder before you run the installer. (Note: Windows treats zip files as folders for browsing, but not for running and installing programs.)

The License.dat file needs to be present in the same folder as the installer to set the Federation University license when you install EndNote.

Do not run the installer directly from within the zip file

The default EndNote installation process installs about 400 common styles. You can also perform a custom installation that will install about 4,000 styles, including many individual journal styles. See the instructions here.

Even more styles are available for download from
