Default Removing PT11 demo?

Need to remove the PT11 demo on the iMac in my sig file. For various and sundry reasons I'm not going forward with PT11 at this time. The install was a simple drag and drop on a Mac; is the install also a simple delete the program from the Applications folder? And what about the other folders that PT11 created - do they need to be removed as well? It seems like PT10 and PT11 share some folders - what can I safely remove that won't screw up my install of PT 10.3.6?

Drag the app to the trash. That's it on the Mac.

It will leave a few harmless files (sorry, don't have names for you) but they aren't taking up any space and will not impact any other software.

Thanks. There's nothing in Application Support to remove then as well? I know some apps dump stuff in there.

I don't think so. With the co install, 10 and 11 are sharing the Avid folder there. If there is anything, my understanding is that it would fall into the "harmless" category.

Thanks. This is info that would be great if Avid would put in the readme file for PT11 or even up on the site somewheres. You know something like 'If you want to uninstall this is what you do' seeing as how Avid saw fit not to include an uninstaller. I guess Avid programmers thought we wouldn't need to do uninstalls between updates like they advise us to do with PT10 and lower.
