Hi - What version of Word, EndNote, and OS?

Hello srspring51,

I have seen the same error on Microsoft Office 2011 - Word 2011.

Our users use EndNote X5, and are on Mac OSX on a mix of 10.6 and 10.7.

This error normally causes Word 2011 to force quit, and attempts to restart unsuccessfully.  This error appears repetitively and does not resolve itself.

Thank you for your help in advance.
