Notes on older versions of EndNote:

If you have a previous version of EndNote installed, you should uninstall it before installing the new version.

When you download EndNote from myLLU you are provided with two files to install the program, an ENX8Inst.msi installer and a license.dat file. These two files must be together in the same folder for the installation to run without asking for a product key. If you are given a zipped file containing these two files, as in the example file shown below, you will need to extract them from the zipped file before running the installer. Right-click on the file, then select the Extract All option.
