ChemDraw 18 is the newest version. Versions 17 and 18 use a different account package called Flexnet to track your serial numbers and allow you to download the software.
If you had a login for the Perkin Elmer webpage for version 16, you must create a new registration for Flexnet - you can reuse the username and password if you want.

The ChemDraw 16 Professional Site Licence package is available free to all registered students, faculty and staff at or affiliated with the University of Toronto. Even though we have version 17, you are still able to download this version.
The download steps:
1. Go to the Cambridgesoft web page (owned by Perkin Elmer)

Note: You can use this serial number on multiple machines - for a work machine, home machine or laptop for example. When you need to download the software onto a second computer, you login with your Cambridgesoft account and download again - just use the same serial number (redo steps 3-5). You can also mix and match Mac and PC versions - PC at work, Mac at home, etc.
Ignore the "Register my software" option - that is for the commercial users.
