What works

Most of the features are working as expected. 

2D Structures can be drawn and correctly exported.

What does not

The installation fails if no workarounds are applied.

Using the 'Page Setup' button crashes the application with an error in comdlg32\printdlg.c.

Chem3D does not work for me.

ChemDraw files seemingly can only be opened from ChemDraw and not through the filebrowser.


The workaround used is basically the same as for version 19.0:

A win32 bottle is setup using:

WINEARCH=win32 winecfg

The needed dependencies are installed via winetricks:

WINEARCH=win32 winetricks gdiplus vcrun2013 dotnet40

Then 7zip was used to extract the PerkinElmer_ChemOffice_Suite_2021_21.0.0.msi from cos21.0.0.exe:

7z e cos21.0.0.exe PerkinElmer/ChemOffice/PerkinElmer_ChemOffice_Suite_2021_21.0.0.msi

The extracted .msi can then be installed via:

msiexec -i PerkinElmer_ChemOffice_Suite_2021_21.0.0.msi

What was not tested

Installation of ChemScript, printing, Plugins

  • GPU: AMD
