How do I request or download the MSI installer file for ChemDraw or ChemOffice?
Since v12.0 we don’t have a separate MSI installer. In order to obtain the MSI installer, you need to extract the content of the EXE file provided for installation.
- The first option is to open the EXE file using a third party application (such as WinZIp or 7-Zip) and extract the content. The MSI installer is located under the \PerkinElmer\ChemOffice folder.
- Recent versions of ChemDraw will also provide a path to extract it when you double-click the EXE file. You can customize the path to have the content extracted somewhere else. Then just go to that custom folder and look for the \PerkinElmer\ChemOffice folder.
