I upgraded to endnote X4 because it was supposed to be compatible with word 2010 and I seem to be coming up against a weird problem. Its not making endnote (the desktop version) the default library, the tab it installed is endnote web. While I have endnote web its rather inconvenient for me to worry about internet connections when I have the program and the citations on my laptop. Is there a way to force it to be the default as when I go to the configure endnote method the box is grayed out?

It sounds like you might just need to install EndNote’s Cite While You Write tools. The FAQs here: http://www.endnote.com/support/faqs/CWYW/faq60.asp and here: http://www.endnote.com/support/faqs/CWYW/faq1.asp tell you how to do it.
I had to do the “repair” function described in the second one after installing the EndNote Web add-in for Word. The add in made it so that I could not switch the EndNote application in Cite While You Write.
Hello - Typically the default application for Cite While You Write is the last application installed so it can be either. Since we support the option to work with both, there is a way to switch without reinstalling or repairing. In Word, go to the Cite While You Write Preferences, click the Application tab, and switch to EndNote.
