I use both FM 7.2 and 8 on the same Vista 32-bit system without problems.
I just open the version I want to use first.

If you used up both of your activations, you will have a problem. I had a
problem starting FM8 under Boot Camp (booting natively into Windows) and
then opening the Boot Camp partition via Parallels in that FM8 activated
both times on my portable. That gave me problems installing it on my tower
with a similar Boot Camp/Parallels configuration. A quick call to Adobe
reset the activation. I think as long as you are not calling every week,
they generally trust the user.
  By the way, either a FM update or a Parallels update removed the problem
from happening again.
