I upgraded from Vista to Windows 7 Professional and everything went very smoothly. Before doing so I checked this site to see if there were any expected problems with EndNote on Win7, but there was “nothing reported.” However, I have noticed that the menu option (right-clicking an in-text reference) is unexpectedly gone in MS Word 2007. This means I can no longer edit citations/references, a feature I used very very much.
Also, I cannot exit MS Word 2007 upon using a document with EndNote references without first getting an EndNote error message (“Unspecified error” - might be “un_known_ error”) and then having Word crash. I have to forcefully shut it down.
I’ve tried repairing EndNote but that did not solve this problem. I tried repairing MS Office 2007 but that too didn’t change anything. Repairing both Office and EndNote (in that order) restarting Windows in-between also did not have any effect. So obviously this is a problem with compatibility between EndNote X3.0.1 and Windows 7.
Did anybody have the same problems? Did anybody find a solution? Is Thomson Reuters working on this problem? As it is right now, EndNote is quite useless - I cannot use it and have to go back to typing my references (or, potentially, purchasing another reference management software).
Please advise. Thank you.
