Installed the demo version of EndNote X3 on Windows XP (all service packs installed) – worked fine, except that there was no EndNote menu in OpenOffice.org Writer 3.01 (in custom installation mode, I had deselected CWYW-support for MS Office, and selected OOo-support instead). Re-running the installation (“modify”) from either the installation file or the control panel did not help (all in admin-mode with OO.o Qickstarter closed, of course).
So I made a new folder “13” within the existing (from my previous X1-version) folder “C:\Program Files\Common Files\ResearchSoft\CWYW” , to which I then copied the file “EndNote.oxt” found in “C:\Program Files\EndNote X3\Product-Support\CWYW” .
Then, I just had to activate the extension: in OO.o Writer, “Tools”  => “Extension Manager” => “Add” , go to the new “13” folder, select “EndNote.oxt”, and “Open” . I then chose “For all users”, and “Close” , re-started Writer, and now the Endnote-Menu showed up just nicely (handbook, troubleshooting-section, p. 699).
I for one applaud this new feature, as I neither have nor want MS Office, and found the previous workaround via .rtf a bit tedious (the Java-CWYW [beta] for Linux/wine already having been quite an improvement).
