Can't open an old project

I recently upgraded to Camtasia 9 and when I try to open an old project from several years ago, I  get the message shown in the screen shot below. I successfully opened another old project (Cam 9 did the conversion for me), but this one won't open and I don't have Cam 8 any more. Help?

You can get Camtasia 8 here.
https://www.techsmith.com/download/oldversions
 Your Camtasia 9 key will work for it and you can have Camtasia 8 and 9 installed on the same machine.
You just can not run both of them at the same time.

Hey Dubie

You can actually open and run CS8 and CS9 at the same time; same is true for CS8 Recorder and CS9 Recorder, although you need to change the CS8 Recorder start/stop capture keyboard shortcuts to something different from what CS9 Recorder uses

I use CS8 Recorder to capture me using CS9 Recorder for my CS9 tutorials

Thanks kayakman,  appreciate you letting me know that.  I didn't think that was possible.

I don't want to be giving out false information if I can help it.

Yep, I run both simultaneously quite often!
