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.

Yes I have [x]Crystal Reports 9
C:\Archivos de programa\Crystal Decisions\Report Designer Component\craxdui.dll

and CR8
C:\Archivos de programa\Seagate Software\Report Designer Component\craxdui.dll

but CR8 Designer not is visible in vb IDE
I think there are a regstry entry that resolve this problem, but I don't know how-to...

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!
