I installed Endnote X5 on my computer. When I open Word 2010 there is no “cite while you write” function. How do I connect these? Thank you!
As in - no EndnoteX5 ribbon?
correct there is nothing in Word 2010 showing a connection to Endnote

The simplest way to get the tools to appear in Word 2010 is to run the “Repair” function by selecting EndNote X4 in the “Add/Remove Programs” (“Programs and Features” in Windows 7 and Vista) in the Windows Control Panel. Choose “Change” then select “Repair”. Click Next on each of these screens until the process finishes. Quit and restart all Office applications and check for the tools in Word.
As an alternate method to installing the tools, you can do the following:
- Open a command line.
XP: Go to the start menu, choose “Run” and type:
Windows 7 or Vista: Go to the start menu. In the search box here, type:
Hold down SHIFT and CTRL and hit the Enter Key.
You will be prompted to approve the “Windows Command Processor.”
- At the prompt, do the following:
For EndNote X4 type:
CD “C:\Program Files\Common Files\ResearchSoft\Cwyw\14”
For EndNote X5 type:
CD “C:\Program Files\Common Files\ResearchSoft\Cwyw\15”
Note that if you have common files installed in a different location, you would need to find this CWYW folder in that other location.
- From this folder, run the command:
regsvr32 “EndNote Cwyw.dll”
I used the command prompt run through. I got this error:
The module "EndNote Cwyw.dll was loaded but the call to DllRegisterService Failed with error code 0x80070005
64 or 32 version? Have you updated to Endnote X5.0.1? (from the Help menu).
I recently downloaded the X5 from the university that I attend and did not have a prior Endnote installed on my computer.
How do I find out if it is a 64 or the 32 version?
Sorry, I meant are you using the 64 or 32 bit version of Word2010? If I were you, I would call Tech support about this, as it is an error I haven’t seen before. Remember you need to have MS Office closed (best that all programs are closed not just Word) to get Endnote to install properly.
