macOS: Install ChemOffice Professional

Once you've followed the other instructions to downloaded an installer from Perkin Elmer for the ChemDraw Pro software, follow these steps to install it on your computer.

1.  Locate the downloaded installer file in your Downloads folder -- it should have a name like 'cdpf170.dmg'.  (you may have a newer version)

2.  Double-Click on that file to open the disk image.  It should appear on your desktop.

3.  Double-Click on the disk image to see its contents.  Then, as instructed, follow the arrows to drag the application icons to the shortcuts for their respective folders, 'Applications' and 'QuickLook'.

4.  Close the installer window, and drag the disk image file to the trash.

5.  Find and double-click the ChemDraw Professional program icon in your Applications Folder.  At first run, the program will request your email address and the registration code for the software.  Be sure to use the email address you registered with Perkin Elmer, and the Lehigh registration code, as listed in your email.
