No problems with side-by-side installations of multiple versions of FM.

Just remember that if you open an FM 7.2 document with FM 8, then it
converts the file to the new format and will, I believe, make that file
unusable in FM 7.2 from that point on.

Also if you install 7.2 after installing 8, then the default file
extension (when clicking on the file in Explorer) opens with version
7.2, so you will need to change that later.
