Hello, I am a PhD student of the a university licence for Chemdraw, in the past I have been using the version 15 without any problem, in a Win7 laptop

Until now, the program refused to load and when I double clicked on any chemdraw file it just crashes and the worst is that you cannot force shut down the program, it is there forever until you restart.

After many attempts to make this work I decided to uninstall it and install the version 16. It just does the same, and it is making my life terribly miserable as I NEED this program to work.

When I try to launch the program it just does nothing but it appears in the task manager, or it loads user interface but it crashes

It seems something is corrupted on your installation that affects both versions of the software.

Please uninstall both versions of the software and then delete the following folder from the Windows registry:

Win 32-bit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > PerkinElmerInformatics

Win 64-bit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Wow6432Node > PerkinElmerInformatics

If you find a Cambdrigesoft folder on the same location delete it too.

Reinstall the software and test again.
