With the approaching release of macOS Catalina, support for running 32-bit software will be dropped. Only 64-bit software will run.
Past versions of EndNote have been distributed as 32-bit for widest compatibility.
Run EndNote, click on the EndNote X9 menu and click About EndNote.
If this shows EndNote X9.3.1 (Bld 15142), you have the latest version of EndNote installed and don’t need to do anything.
If you are running any other version you will need to update.
Quit any Microsoft Office software (including Outlook) before running an EndNote installer or update. (Note: close the app itself, not just open documents e.g. Word menu, Quit Word)
After updating, when you open an EndNote library, you will be asked to convert the library to the latest format.
Please choose Yes, and save the converted library with a new name.
The new converted library is the one to use from then on.

The two files in the Windows download MUST be copied from the downloaded zip file into another destination folder first (your Windows desktop is OK).
Do this before running the installer (ENX8Inst) from the destination folder.
DO NOT attempt to run the installer by double-clicking on the download, then directly double-clicking on ENX8Inst in the preview.
From time to time EndNote will provide update patches to fix problems and improve performance.
If you get a notification about an update whenever you start EndNote, the Library recommends you download and install the update.
