Write N Cite and Word 2010: Are they compatible?
You can use the RefWorks program Write-N-Cite with Word 2010, but due to changes in Word 2010, there is a twist.
Microsoft offers a version of Word 2010 called Click-to-Run. Click-to-Run is "virtualized," so since it isn't installed on your computer, Write-N-Cite can't find it and you will get an error message when you do try to download it. The full application must be installed on the local computer for Write-n-Cite III to recognize the installation of MS Word 2010.
Once you have the full application of Word 2010 installed on your computer, you will need to restart your computer, and then you can install Write-N-Cite.
If you do not want to locally install Word 2010, but still want to use RefWorks to format your citations and generate bibliographies, you can use the One Line/Cite View option as described here or as appears on page 11 of the RefWorks 2.0 Fundamentals User Workbook.
