I'm trying to downgrade Directx12 to Directx11 on Win10.

The only way I've been able to even find the Directx11 download is through a Windows Vista .msu Service Pack. I figured I could just run it in compatibility mode, but no dice. You can only run .exe & .msi files in compatibility mode. 

Being the knucklehead that I am, I've already deleted the regeedit files for Directx12, (minus Default Reg_SZ). *Without setting a system restore point* derp. 

Does anyone know how I can download the vista .msu for Directx11 on a windows 10 operating system? .. or any other way to downgrade?

Why are you trying to downgrade your graphic card support DirectX 12. The DirectX 12 drastically will have higher frame rates, drastically lower power consumption, blazingly fast performance and reduced latency using the hardware you own now. By tapping into all the cores of your multicore CPU simultaneously, DirectX 12 boosts the amount of work that can be sent to the graphics card – and gets it done in less time. Plus, DirectX 12 allows your GPU to run multiple tasks at once, so you save rendering time, reduce latency, and get more frames per second. Two revolutionary features in DirectX 12 are driving these innovations: multi-threaded command buffer recording and asynchronous shaders.
