Q195: ChemDraw

Can I install ChemDraw or ChemBio3D Ultra on a Macintosh computer?

NOTE: ChemBIO3D Ultra is not supported on Mac OS X. If your computer has Boot Camp you can install the Windows version.

You can still install ChemDraw on a Macintosh computer by going to UW-Stout's Cambridge software site webpage download site with a vailid UW-Stout or my.uwstout.edu email address.  After verification of email you will be prompted to choose installation.  Choose the Macintosh download. 

Download the installation file to your hard drive.  The file should automatically decode and decompress leaving you with a folder on your desktop containing the ChemDraw installer.  If the file does not automatically decompress the folder, you may have to double click on the file you downloaded to decompress the installer folder.  Open the decompressed folder, and the double click  on the installer icon inside of the folder and follow the on screen prompts to install ChemDraw.  Use the serial number and registration code that was emailed to you earlier after verifying email address to complete installation.

If you have technical questions and need support please check Cambridge support site, the Ask5000 knowledgebase for common issues, or call or stop by the Ask5000 Helpdesk in Millennium Hall.
