PS. gEDA is a *full* suite of software, not just a schematics editor like the Zuken download. What happens when you want to do something useful with the CADSTAR schematics (like create a PCB)? I am guessing you have to buy their PCB software.

Alternatively you could consider using an open source package such as gEDA or KiCAD which are always available for download. Open source packages have open file formats which allow you freedom to move as you see fit, rather than being locked into a specific vendor's file format. The open file format also opens up a host of possibilities for improving workflow. I have been using gEDA (http://geda.seul.org) for a while now and it has been a very successful tool in my business. You can see more of my thoughts on open source EDA here, http://blog.engineersimplicity.com/2008/11/open-source-eda.html
