I'm in the process of developing some SharePoint addins, and I'm having an issue where I renamed a solution file. After I renamed it, I re-deployed it and I can add it to a page the same as always. Problem is now I have a "dead" plugin in the menu that I cannot figure out how to remove! There is only one WSP listed in the solutions lists, and it is for the newer version of the plugin. enter image description here

V2 is the newer version, but I cannot get the original solution to remove itself from this menu.

Is there a way to manually remove these references to the dead solution?


You can remove webparts from the web part gallary of your site.

Goto Site Actions > Galleries > WebPart


Then search your .webpart file and remove it from the list.
