No need to downgrade, if something is not completely compatible with Dx 11 you can run Dx 9 installation and it will ad some files without ruining 11.

Yeah, that's why some games come with Dx9 installation even knowing that is going to be used with Dx10 or 11. but may also need to ad or change something to Dx to make their SW run. Don't worry if that games installation ask to install lower Dx, it will not ruin anything, if all is right it will not change anything.
