'07 crashes when importing files (because '08 & '09 are installed?)

I have a customer who requests that I do the job in '07. I also have '08 and '09 installed. In '07 only, I can't import dwg files or step files without crashing SolidWorks (haven't tried other file types). Is this a known problem? I don't recall this being an issue before, in '07 or any other release. I'm wondering if there's some kind of conflict in the registry or something like that.

I have tried repairing the '07 installation & when that didn't work, I uninstalled it and reinstalled it, upgrading to sp5.0. I might try removing '08 & '09 temporarilly to see if the problem goes away, perhaps after again reinstalling '07, but I really hope it won't take all that to solve the problem.
