Important directions on installing EndNote on all operating systems

Before you begin installing EndNote please close any other programs currently running, otherwise the plug-in „Cite While You Write” (CWYW) cannot be installed to your word-processing software. You may find - particularly in the case of a Mac (Apple OSX) installation - that CWYW has not been properly installed in your Word program. If that should be the case, the installation and configuration directions for EndNote given below will help you.

Once you have exmatriculated (i.e. left the University, for example on completion of your studies), or terminated your employment contract with the LMU, you will not be able to continue using EndNote. You must uninstall the software.
