It seems that one of your packages needs pictex, which is known to use  
a huge amount of dimension registers.
On my gwTeX installation (teTeX 3 with iinstaller) there is an  
pictexwd.sty and pictexwd.tex which claims to use less dimension  
Maybe you can persuade your chemical package to use pictexwd instead of  
pictex  or just change the line "\input pictex" in pictex.sty to  
"\input pictexwd".
