HI there, as it is not recommended by Microsoft, refer the link here,

And they strongly discourage this type testing and I suggest you to find an alternate solution like Oracle virtual box and running multiple instance running with different IE versions.

Active Protection takes the fight to cryptojacking

Never downgrade your IE version. Always keep the newest or you will have opened up security holes. You should rather use IE's "Compatibility mode" to render content made for older versions properly.
"Can we install IE 8 on windows 7 ? along with existing IE 11

Forget IE 8., it is slow ...
For compatibility issues with older websites pages,  you can use Chrome & Firefox as well as IE 11 (in Compatibility Mode)  on the same PC

"Which Browser is Best? Chrome vs. Firefox vs. Internet Explorer"
It's simply not possible to have 2 versions of Internet Explorer (IE) installed.
This as IE is too much integrated into the Windows system.
If it's for testing then try to install Windows 7 on a virtual machine via VMware or VirtualBox.
Windows 7 comes by default with IE 8 installed.
