I have just updated Word 2016 on my Mac to version 16.8 (171129) and have received the message that my EndNote CWYW Word 2016.bundle is not compatible with this update. Have others had this problem, and is there a fix?
PS Have just seen the message from Rick, thus it's a known issue, thanks.

Just want to confirm that I have the same message with the same update. There is clearly a incompatibility now between Endnote CWYW and this last version of Word.
We can just now hope that a fast update will be provided or use another writing software than Microsoft Word.

If your verison of Word 2016 is 16.xx instead of 15.xx, please see this article:

This does seem to happen too often with Endnote. Are Microsoft so unhelpful that they don't give addon providers any time to anticipate the changes? I don't seem to get this happening with other software, but this is my only outside add-on with Word.

Hello Mark Roseman,
The Office Insider version is essentially a beta release of Word. We are currently working with Microsoft to make sure our EndNote X8 add-in will be compatible with their version 16.xx release of Word 2016 Mac. That is why we released a beta preview of EndNote X8.2 Mac. If you are interested and eligible, you can sign up here: http://endnote.com/betasignup

Yesterday, I updated my Word for Mac (Sierra) and am now running 16.9. When re-opening Word after the installation, Endnote CWYW didn't work. From reading your posts, I know this is a common problem with Word-updates, but I've signed up for and downloaded the Beta-version, reinstalled the CWYW a couple of times, but it still is not working.
Is the Beta-version not compatible either?
Any other thoughts on how to solve this?
What's the perspective on Endnote making their software compatible with Word's update?

The CWYW EndNote beta version X8.2p3 (build 13260), a beta version works with Word 2016 Mac v16.9 (180109).
However, this beta version start to crash when a new group is added.
