ChemDraw installation and renewal

A how-to guide on installing the latest version of ChemDraw and how to renew each year in November.

Renewal instructions

Chemdraw will need to be renewed each November once the Chemistry Librarian has received confirmation of the site licence renewal.

Our licence also supports the previous 2 versions  - we do recommend that you do upgrade at some point though you do not need to do it immediately.  If you are using version 14 or lower, you must upgrade.

After November, you can no longer renew your subscription with these instructions and must download a new copy (follow installation instructions) which triggers a new serial number/reg code (emailed to you and also found in the "My Downloads" on the Cambridgesoft site) which can then be used to activate the subscription again.
