Given that the Windows only Endnote Link was developed in 2009/2010 it probably only works on Endnote versions that were around then. Endnote 9 is a much older version so there maybe some differences in how that talks/links to other programs. If you have Windows it ought to work for Endnote X2 or X3 etc.
