You say you didn't uninstall CR8?  According to CR it should still be there.  CR9 is the first version that can run with other versions loaded.

Try this

Open the program
Select PROJECT --> REFERENCES
Remove all references to the CR9 files
Click BROWSE
Browse to the CR8 versions
Select and click OK

Thanks mlmcc 4 your comment
I tried that, but don't work. However I found the way to have both versions designers. One on time.
To do this execute the run option in the start menu:
-If I need CR8 Designer
regsvr32 "C:\Archivos de programa\Seagate Software\Report Designer Component\craxdui.dll"

-If I need CR9 Designer
regsvr32 "C:\Archivos de programa\Crystal Decisions\Report Designer Component\craxdui.dll"

Thanks a lot! again!
