how to i remove/delete web-part from SP 2010

i tried the below command and it does says operation complted successfully but it still shows up in the custom web part bucket when adding webparts...

stsadm.exe -o deletesolution -name SyndicationWebPart.wsp -override

Please retract the solution, delete just removes the wsp from solution store

stsadm -o retractsolution -name *wspfile file name* -url site url -immediate

  • it says: visualwebpart1.wsp does not exist in the solution store but i can see it when i edit the page and click on insert web part – Nick Kahn Sep 1 '11 at 20:46

    Deleting web parts that are referenced is a sure fire way to failed upgrades including patches and service packs. – Mike Oryszak Sep 2 '11 at 1:33

I believe you also need to remove the Web part from the site collection Web part gallery.
