By the way, next time if you will need to convert something from CDR to 
another format you can eventually download Corel Draw X4 as a trial and do 
the conversion (and uninstall CorelDraw in the end). the only thing you need

here's the download trial page at corel's website:

Anyway, let's hope uniconverter and SK1 will be available for 64bit 
computers soon :)
