As suggested in the tests before, the .exe filed has to be opened with the archive manager. There I had to search the .msi file. I could install Chemdraw with the .msi file.
As it is suggested in the crossover forum for Chemdraw (see https://www.codeweavers.com/co...), -Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 has to be installed in the same bottle as chemdraw.
I could draw all structural formulas in the last two years I used the program without any problems.
What does not
The program can not be opened via clicking on a chemdraw file, this will cause a crash. Instead, the program has to be opened first and in a second step the file can be pulled into it. It seems as if it is fine once Chemdraw has been opened once in the current session.
The emf export does sometimes not work properly. A work around is to open the file with Inkscape, copy the content of the emf into a new file and save this new emf file.
What was not tested
Enough testing was carried out.
