Any particular reason for the downgrade ?

Downgrade involves uninstalling the new version and then installing the older version. If you have the older version's Data/Catlaog directories, then they can be imported as well.

...bear in mind that when downgrading, nothing gets carried across. You start from scratch. Which might be worth it if you're having issues with BE 2014, be it usability or support for applications/OS.

Before doing the uninstallation of BE 2014 though, grab copies of the Data/Catalogs folders after stopping the BE services in case you decide to revert back to BE 2014.
