Applies To: Office SharePoint Server 2007

Updated: 2007-04-26

Removes a Windows SharePoint Services Solution Package (*.wsp) from the solution store. The user who executes this command must have privileges to remove the solution. This command supports removing only one file from the solution store at a time.

If an administrator cannot remove a currently deployed solution, the following message will be displayed:

“The solution <file name> is deployed on the farm. Use the retractsolution operation to reverse the deployment. You can also use the -override parameter to forcibly remove the solution, but you will not be able to retract the solution deployment.”

If a solution has language packs that have been deployed, the administrator cannot remove the solution. The following message will be displayed:

"The solution <file name> has one or more language packs deployed in the farm. Use the retractsolution operation to reverse the deployment of these language packs."


stsadm -o deletesolution

   -name <name>


   [-lcid] <language>
