Default Deleting app manager

I am finally getting rid of this useless bit of software. I used the app manager uninstaller, which seemed to remove the application itself, but upon looking in Mac OS library there are still loads of app manager folders, some with the caches that comes to quite a few GB.

Am I save to delete these?

Thanks

Library/Caches/Avid/Application Manager and then four folders in there

hidden Library/Application Support/Avid Technology/Application Manager/QtWebEngine/Default

hidden Library/Caches/Avid Technology/Application Manager/QtWebEngine/Default

There were also some licenses left in Application support I think, but as these were just text files I deleted these already

You should be fine removing all those. It's only every of use to App Manager which you no longer care about. Who knows why the uninstaller did not whack them. But not too unusual for uninstallers forget to clean out all the cache stuff, I recently noticed Nikon's camera software fails to do that for example.

And now everybody knows App manager was written in Qt (as is Avid Link)
