I have windows 8.1. Flash updated to version 14. I have tried uninstalling it because the modules I need to run aren't compatible. I need version 11.5. when I run the uninstaller it still shows the shockwave flash object as version 14.
Because Flash Player is built into Windows 8.x, you're going to have a difficult, if not impossible time, downgrading the version for IE to 11.5. Instead, I'd recommend using Firefox, then installing 11.5 from our archive page -
