I accidentally installed my application template (roomequipmentreservations.wsp) before installing ApplicationTemplateCore.wsp in our WSS 3.0 server. Now both templates are showing up as "Error" in the central administration page.

I tried to retract and delete the solutions/templates, but always get a message saying "a deployment or retraction of the solution is already underway for the solution <template name>...".
Commands used:
stsadm -o retractsolution -name roomequipmentreservations.wsp -immediate
stsadm -o deletesolution -name roomequipmentreservations.wsp

How can I clean these two solutions so I could re-install them properly?
