I have ChemBioOffice 15.1 and Gaussian 09W installed on Windows 7 x64.
I have checked a checkbox "Always display interface to... even if calculation engine is not present" under File -> Preferences -> General.
But I still do not see "Gaussian intreface" under Calculation menu.
How can I turn it on?
Actually I don't even need to run Gaussian from Chem3D, I only need to generate the job files for Gaussian.

When you go to Help > About on Chem3D does it say Pro or Ultra? Only the Ultra level will have the Gaussian Interface under the Calculations Menu.

If you have Chem3D Pro then it's likely that you have ChemDraw Professional and not ChemOffice Professional installed. You can check this by going to Programs and Features in your Control Panel.

Are you using the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of Gaussian 09w? Only the 32-bit version is compatible with ChemOffice Professional 15.1.
