Central Admin - System Settings - Manage Farm Solutions, pick your wsp and hit Retract, then Remove once it's done.

That did the trick !! –  Jithu Nov 24 '11 at 9:54

Follow the steps for STSADM:

  1. Open command prompt and navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\BIN

  2. Use the stsadm command = stsadm -o retractsolution -name solutionName.wsp -immediate

  3. and then remove the wsp = stsadm -o deletesolution -name solutionName.wsp

Follow the steps for Powershell:

  1. Go to All Programs => Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Products =>SharePoint 2010 Management Shell =>Run as administrator

  2. Uninstall-SPSolution -identity "solutionName.wsp"

  3. Remove-SPSolution -identity "solutionName.wsp"

Hi Deepu, thank you for this alternate ways to remove the solution :) +1 –  Jithu Nov 24 '11 at 9:55
