Yes, DirectX11 (DX11) is intergrated in WIndows 7 and can't be removed. However DirectX (11) is backwards compatible, meaning that it can run and play games in 9 & 10 modes.
Also be aware that in order to play in DX11 mode, 3 criteria must be met: The OS must be DX11 (software), the game must be DX11 (software), and the video card must be DX11 (hardware). If any of these are not, the game will run in the lowest mode of those 3 items...
OS= DX11, Game= DX11, Video card= DX9, the game will play in DX9
DX11. If we went game
DX9, video card
DX11, the game would still run DX9 because there is a DX9 item in play.
