Technical Issues

Downloading Issues: The Endnote software does not download from MyLLU account and displays an error message. This may occur if the program is downloaded wirelessly. If you encounter this problem, please contact us at x 44588 or bring in your laptop and we will help you put the program on your laptop.

Running the program asks for a product key:  This occurs on PCs when after downloading the EndNote file, patrons double click on the folder which looks like the EndNote program.  This is an error as they first need to extract/unzip the files. The solution is to uninstall, reinstall and extract/unzip the files.

The EndNote toolbar does not show up in Word after downloading:  The solution to this one is to uninstall EndNote and then to reinstall it again.

Not common but has occured recently: Word 2008 on Macs need Service Pack 1 (an office update) for the toolbar to show up.
