SnagIt option to send to alternate version of Camtasia

I have Camtasia 8 and Camtasia 9 installed and I prefer to send SnagIt video capture to Camtasia 8 because V8 still uses MP3 for audio. However the default send from SnagIt  is to Camtasia 9 so is there a method to provide me with a choice?

Hmmm, I know when you install apps they create an association in Windows so that when you double-click one of the files used by the app, the app opens.

Wondering here if the answer is as simple as somehow configuring the "open with" bit in windows so that version 8 opens instead of 9?

Cheers... Rick :)

One thing you might want to try would be to uninstall both 8 and 9. Then reinstall each with 9 being first and 8 being last. My thought here is that the last version installed should be kind of the "default" used for things like SnagIt sending to Camtasia.

I've run into this; no real solution; but you could uninstall CS8, then reinstall CS8 again [last man standing wins the gun fight]; that might help; but the CS9 install will be compromised re shortcuts,etc?

Thanks guys for sharing your thoughts on this. I guess life is busy enough without uninstalling and reinstalling
