Reference Manager A9AA If you are running Windows NT/2000/XP, you must install the program while logged in as the user who will be running the program, and this account must have administrative rights to the local machine during installation in order for the registry to be updated correctly. If the CWYW tools do not install for any reason during program setup you can manually install the tools by doing the following: 1. Within Microsoft Word go to the Tools menu and select Options. 2. Click the File Locations tab, highlight the Startup folder, and then click the Modify button. 3. Note the path to the Microsoft Word Startup folder. If no path is listed at the bottom of the window click on the "Look In" dropdown at the top of the window and note the path. 4. Close Word and Outlook if running. 5. Launch Windows Explorer and locate your Reference Manager folder. In this folder you will find a subfolder called "CWYW". There are two files in this folder you need to copy, depending on which version of Reference Manager and Word you are using...

Before you use the tools for the first time, close Word, then open Reference Manager and a database, then re-open Word and click on one of the Reference Manager commands. The programs must only be opened in this order the first time you use the tools so that the registry will be updated correctly. ReferenceManager Win 98 8 en Y
