Endnote and MS Word

Hello,

Earlier this week I used my Endnote X4 with Word 2011, no problems. Then today, I cannot get Endnote to work; that is - Word says EndNote is not responding (error code 1712).

Has this happened to anyone else? I have recently downloaded an update to MS, but cannot remember if Endnote still worked after that update.

Did you find any answer to this? I have Word '11 and EndNote X4, but when I click "Go to EndNote," the search tool for citations, or anything from the little Endnote bar that Word has, the button looks like it's stuck being pushed, and I can't type anywhere or do anything in Word. After a long time it finally comes up saying "EndNote is not responding. Error = -1712"

Kind of...? I found something that worked for other people. I tried it, and everything went to hell, even worse. So, try at your own risk. The people commenting on the solution seemed to like it, but it screwed me over hard.

I found this: it worked

EndNote: Format Bibliography freezing or giving 1712 error in OSX 10.8.2

There is a known issue with OSX 10.8.2 that will cause Cite While You Write to either freeze while formatting or give you a -1712 (time out error). While a bit technical, this is what is currently “known” about the problem:
The problem is specific to the OS X 10.8.2 update specifically, not EndNote or Word.
The problem is directly related to the use of the AESendMessage/AESend functions used with typeApplicationBundleID or typeApplSignature for the target type.
Using typeKernelProcessID for the target type still works. However EndNote uses the bundle signature.
Killing the appleeventsd daemon fixes the problem temporarily (Antonin Hildebrand discovered this fact). This can also be done by logging out then logging back in.
Note: We recommend those experiencing this issue should contact Apple directly. This can help prioritize the effort. Here is the link to contact Apple: http://www.apple.com/feedback/macosx.html

To kill the appleeventsd process directly please do the following:
If EndNote or Word are stuck, restart both applications.


Go to Applications : Utilities.
Run the Activity Monitor found there.
Set the "Show" option at the top of the window to All Processes (not My Processes which is default).
Click the column header "Process Name" to sort alpabetically.
Highlight the appleeventsd process.
Click the “Quit Process” button.
Try using EndNote or Word now.



The above indicates that the problem is likely to be some kind of stale cache used by appleeventsd for mapping bundle ids and 4-letter application signatures to process ids. It also indicates that triggering this problem involves relaunching the target application (in order to give it a new process id). This has been confirmed by a user (Torsten Grust) in the context of MailMate/SpamSieve.

Works!

Thanks for the solution (albeit temporary). I too am on tight deadlines that unfortunately rely on Endnote.

Did you try upgrading to EndNote X6? I think the 6.0.2 update to X6 released in Jan of this year is the one that officially supports Mountain Lion.
