There are two ways to install pic2mol add-in into ChemDraw: from URL and from file. Below are the installation instruction for both options.

The add-in says "update available", but does not update when I restart ChemDraw
On Windows caching settings of Internet Explorer may prevent the add-in from updating properly.
