How to uninstall Bamboo.core.v1.wsp from your SharePoint farm
- Bamboo Farm deployed products that use Telerik. See Bamboo products that use Telerik for a list.
- SharePoint Foundation 2010 and SharePoint Server 2010 have Bamboo.core.wsp and Bamboo.core.v1.wsp.
- SharePoint 2007 has Bamboo.core.wsp
Errors occur and you can not access your sites after manually retracting and removing bamboo.core.v1.wsp or Bamboo.core.wsp from your SharePoint farm.
If you need to remove all of your Bamboo products from the farm, and you run the installers that come with the products and select the option to “remove”, the bamboo.core.wsp and/or bamboo.core.v1.wsp is intentionally left behind.
This is because during installation and deployment, the bamboo.core.v1.wsp (or bamboo.core.wsp) solution puts specific versions of the Telerik.web.ui and Telerik.web.ui.Skins assemblies into the Global Assembly Cache (GAC). The associated bamboo.telerik.config.wsp solution programmatically adds Telerik-related entries into the web.config for the web application(s) selected during the install. These entries refer to specific versions of Telerik.web.ui* assemblies. Web.config files should not be modified manually.
When the product(s) and solutions are uninstalled, the changes to the web.config file regarding Telerik.web.ui are not removed. This is because there may be other SharePoint solutions from sources other than Bamboo that use this version of Telerik. For the same reason, the bamboo.core.v1.wsp (or bamboo.core.wsp) is left deployed because uninstalling it removes some specific versions of Telerik.web.ui* assemblies from the GAC.
If you remove bamboo.core.v1.wsp (either manually via Central Administration, PowerShell, or stsadm), then the Telerik.web.ui* assemblies will be removed from the GAC but the entries will remain in the web.config files. This may leave you unable to access your web pages.
If you are sure there are no other solutions that rely on Telerik on your farm, it will be OK to retract and remove the bamboo.core.v1.wsp (or bamboo.core.wsp) solution. However, you must be sure to also remove the Telerik entries from the various web.config files where they have been added.
Leave the bamboo.core.v1.wsp deployed. Do not uninstall it.
If you must remove the bamboo.core.v1.wsp (or bamboo.core.wsp), remove it by retracting and then removing the solution from the Manage Solutions page in Central Admin. See Uininstalling from SharePoint Central Administration for more information.
After it is successfully removed, please use PowerShell to remove the Telerik entries from the web application(s) web.config file. This will ensure that changes to the web.config are saved in the database. For more information, see How to Remove a web.config Modification Using PowerShell
