How do I upgrade from an earlier version?

UPGRADE INSTRUCTIONS

Will my database/library be automatically converted to the new version?

  1. EndNote should be able to convert any library from an earlier version of EndNote. Before upgrading to a new version of EndNote, you may want to use the "Recover Library" command on your "EndNote library" to ensure that the data in the library is cleaned up.
  2. If you do have problems converting a library, see the Support links on the EndNote website.

While this is not strictly necessary, EndNote instructions always recommend that you uninstall any previous versions (including Demo versions) to avoid confusion later.

  1. First back up any existing EndNote library files and any customized content files (e.g. styles, connection files, and filters).
  2. Close all open programs, and then uninstall any older versions by selecting "Add/Remove Programs" from the Windows Control Panel (or trash the old folders on a Mac).
  3. Once any older versions have been uninstalled, run the EndNote download following instructions elsewhere on this page.
  4. This will create a new EndNote program folder, and you can then move any backed up library or content files into this new folder.
