How to Obtain and Install ChemDraw

So, you've been tasked with installing ChemDraw on your personally owned computer, eh? Well, you've come to the right place. Just follow these instructions and you'll soon be contorting your cranium with a carbon-based cornucopia of creative chemical concoctions.

Follow this link to Willamette's Perkin-Elmer sign-in page:

One of two things will happen:

(1) If you already Registered your email address with Perkin-Elmer in the past, entering your email address here will take you to a page that lists the Mac or Windows download options and allow you to download the version of your choice.

(2) If you have not Registered previously, clicking on a download will re-direct you to a Perkin-Elmer Informatics login page. Here, you'll need to click Register and register your Willamette email account in their system. Once registered, RETURN TO THIS PAGE and click the above link again and it will now direct you to the proper download page.

After downloading the software, you should receive an email containing a license code within minutes. With license code in hand, launch the installer, enter the code where prompted, and you'll be ready to bond with ChemDraw!

Feel free to email Jeff Allen ( with any questions or issues regarding this process.
