What is the Massey Profile Installer?

December 21, 2021

The Massey Profile Installer is what the library uses to manage EndNote settings and files so that it works smoothly with Massey Library resources. It is a good idea to download and run it after any EndNote software update to ensure settings are maintained.

It is available for both Windows PCs  or Macs. Make sure the EndNote program is closed before running the profile installer.

Notes for Mac users:

  • Some browsers may open the file. Right-(or CTRL-) click on the link to save it.
  • Some machines may give a security warning when trying to run the profiler. Right-(or CTRL-) click on the file and choose the Open options to override this.
  • You will need restart your computer after install to ensure settings are correctly loaded.
  • Check out our tips for Mac users post.

If you have any persistent problems, do contact the Library.

    I can’t get the program to run on my computer.

    I ran this programme, exactly as it suggests, and it wiped my installation of Endnote and all the settings I had carefully organised. Not sure why it would do that but clearly something is very wrong with this profiler. Additionally, it is now out of date as the current Endnote version is 9.3 – which might be why it completely failed and messed up my installation. Something is wrong and needs correcting with this software of the advice about installation needs to be clearer – like, if you upgrade make sure the profiler is of the same version?
