I never had any trouble to use EN for Mac with different Word 2016 but since updating Word to the 64-bit 15.25 version and despite updating EN to 7.7 (compatible with Word 15.25) I now for the first time get this weird error message at every launch of Word. After accepting the message, everything runs well with EN. I looked for an old "EndNote CWYW Word 2011.bundle" (this is the add-in that seems to be incompatible with Word 15.25 - according to the error message at lauch of Word)... but this old bundle had been deleted a long time ago... does anyone else experience a similar oddity? If yes, did anyone come up with a solution for it?

Ok, even though this seems odd... but it worked: I removed the EndNote CWYW Word 2011.bundle file in the /Application/EndNote 7/Cite While You Write/ folder. No more weird error message.

The accepted answer did not solve the problem for me. I still got the warning that an Add-In was unable to launch. Then I performed the following search:
sudo find / -iname '*CWYW Word 2016.bundle'
This found one file in
/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Office365/User Content.localized/Startup.localized/Word/EndNote CWYW Word 2016.bundle
Deleting this then solved issue for good.

This is a neat trick but didn't solve the issue. It did find the hidden file (Office365 doesn't show in application support) but when I tried the command, it said "Operation not permitted" (see attachment. Any suggestions?

I also couldnt find the Office365 folder in the Applicationsupport>Microsoft>Office directory.
I can see the bundle as in the Terminal command and it shows up in this "Office365" folder, but cant see it.
I tried "defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles YES" to see if the folder was hidden, but no, nothing shows up.
I cant even use terminal to CD into the Office365 folder as it doesnt exist according to terminal.
Any more ideas?
