Can't load Visual Basic for Applications


One of our students downloaded EndNote X6 for Mac and immediately Microsoft Word stopped functioning. If he tried to open a Word document he got the error message, ’ Can’t load Visual Basic for Applications’ and instructions as to how to fix it - which didn’t work. He uninstalled EndNote X6 and now I can use Word again.  I haven’t found this error condition anywhere.  Any clues?  Is there anything about what he is running that might suggest a problem?

  1. Did the student install the recent Mac update for X6 released in January:

  2. Was MS Word closed when EndNote X6 was installed?

3. What version of MS Word and Mac OS is the student using?  Does his/her computer system comply with those needed for EndNote X6:

Thanks for this.  I’ll pass it on to the student and see how we go.
