This is a reduced version of Chemcraft for Windows, fully freeware. To avoid competing of Chemcraft Lite with the commercial version, several limitations have been made in it:
- Each time the program starts, the user has to enter a randomly generated string to begin using it. Another annoying window appears from time to time while using the program;
- Visualization of Gaussian files is reduced (no visualization of molecular orbitals, atomic
properties and forces, NBO bonds and cube files, and no text in Abstract);
- The possibility to copy/paste molecular fragments is disabled;
- The molecule's image can't be saved in JPEG format and can't be copied into
clipboard. The size of saved image can't be altered;
Download Chemcraft Lite:

To install Chemcraft Lite, simply unpack all files from the archive into appropriate directory. Unlike the fully functional version, it is not registered in "Add/Remove programs" list in Windows.
