How to programmatically differentiate which version of Crystal is used

How does one control which version of Crystal gets invoked when versions 8.5 and 10.0 are both installed on the same computer (Windows XP SP3). Using the following code, version 8.5 is always invoked although there is the suffix ".10".

Since I am opening a version 10 file, I get the message "Invalid TLV record".  If I open a version 8.5 file it works.  I do not want to uninstall 8.5, but rather control which version is used.
Set App = CreateObject("CrystalRuntime.Application.10")
Set Rept = App.OpenReport(RptFile)
