ChemDraw installation and renewal

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

Older version renewals

Our site licence includes support for the previous two versions of ChemBioDraw.

For Mac users, if you have version 14.0 or older you must upgrade to version 16 or 17 if possible (requires the latest Mac operating system, OS 10.9 or higher).

If you cannot upgrade your OS then we can get a serial number and reg code for version 15. Contact me for help - Patricia Meindl,

After November, you can no longer renew your subscription for versions 15 and 16 with these instructions and must request from Cambridgesoft, via the support ticket , a serial number/reg code which can then be used to activate the subscription again.
