Hey, I have been using EndNote on my Mac. Recently I have deleted the application. But still every time I Launch word i see the notifications that "Your add-in isn't compatible with this version of Word. Please contact the add-in provider for an update.(EndNote CWYW Word 2016.bundle)".
I tried to open word go to Tools -> Templeates and Add-ins - > and remove EndNote CWYW Word 2016.bundle from the list of global add-ins, but I cannot cuz "-" is blocked. How can i get rid of this annoying notifications?

1. You'd want to start by quitting Word altogether.
2. After quitting Word, open a Finder window.
3. With Finder showing, click the "Go" menu at the top of your screen and choose "Computer".
4. Open Macintosh HD.
5. Navigate to the following folder:
Library > Application Support > Microsoft > Office365 > User Content > Startup > Word
6. Take the "EndNote CWYW Word 2016.bundle" file out of the mentioned Word folder and place it inside your Trash.
7. Relaunch Word and open a document - you should no longer receive the mentioned error when working in Word.
Please let me know if this helps.

My version of Microsoft Word for Mac is 16.8 (171129), and that of EndNote is X8.1 (Bld 12930). My Mac is running macOS High Sierra Version 10.13.1. However, I could not use EndNote in my Microsoft Mac.
The screen I saw is in the attached file. Please help with this problem. Thanks!

Word was unable to load an add-in.
Your add-in isn't compatible with this version of Word.
Please contact the add-in provider for an update.
(EndNote CWYW Word 2016.bundle)
I deleted Endnote and all references to it and buldles.

As you may have seen. EndNote is not currently compatible with this Office Insider edition of Word 2016 version 16.xx. This includes 16.8. If you wish to be able to use the EndNote tools with Word 2016, you can downgrade your version of Word to the production version of 15.xx (currently 15.40) by following the steps found here:
If you do not wish to use the EndNote tools and have deleted the software already, you can do the following:
