EndNote 20

Download and Install for Windows

To download and install the KU-licensed EndNote 20 software:

  1. Navigate to the KU IT Computing, Printing and Software Page and search for EndNote. 
  2. Select the installation package specific to either Windows or macOS operating system. 
  3. FOR WINDOWS: Make sure Windows is completely updated (Windows 10 is required) and close any Microsoft Office programs that are open.
  4. Save the compressed/zip file in your Downloads folder and locate the downloaded EndNote 20 zipped folder in your Downloads Folder.      If prompted during download, select the Save File option; DO NOT use the "Open with..." option.

  1. Extract the EndNote 20 installation files from the zipped folder to SEPARATE folder.                                                                                         The downloaded files must be unzipped & extracted in order to properly install EndNote.

  1. As a KU user, you should not be asked to enter a product key to install the EndNote desktop program. After downloading the EndNote zip file, you unzip it and place the extracted files in a SEPARATE folder. Then clicking the installer should allow you to install the program on a Windows computer.


If the EndNote Install Wizard asks for a License Code during installation, then the unzipped files are not being used for the installation!
Cancel the EndNote installation and double-check that you are using the unzipped & extracted files to install EndNote before re-starting the installation.
