UNINSTALL ANY OLD VERSIONS OF PYCHEM. Download the file and double click on the executable, follow the instructions in the wizard. Shortcuts to the program will appear under the Start Menu and on the Desktop. No further programs need to be installed. Please note that the source code is not provided with this installation, use one of the other options below.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If PyChem does not run, it may be that one or more of the following dependencies (most are windows system files) is NOT installed on your computer. They can all be downloaded at your discretion from http://www.dll-files.com/, or a local search on your computer will most probably find them. Once you have the files just save into the PyChem installation directory. The two that most likely need to be placed in the PyChem dir are highlighted in yellow.
