Compatibility information.  Note that WA Health PCs still have X9.3 deployed and cannot transition to 20 until all PCs are running Win 10 and Office 365.

Once you have completed the download, you will have the .dmg file. Click on the .dmg file in order to begin the installation process.  Remember once you open an EndNote library in X9.3 and above it will NOT open in earlier versions of EndNote so if you use your libraries at work and at home, this will be a problem.
