Hi,
I have a customized entity which I need to removed as it's become corupt.  I can not re-publish a new one over the current and also I can not delate the current as it throws an error with no information on at all.
Anyone know how to remove them?

Hi BigBlueMan, 
Could you please check event logs on the server and check for any errors? Best thing would be to try again to publish and check out if any errors/warnings you get in eventlog.
Regards,
Chinmay

Usually this occurs when there is still some hook left to the custom entity -  a workflow execution in pending
 state, a relationship to another entity, an advanced find or system view.  Here is a similar case:

If you can't find it manually, enable tracing and then try to delete it again.  The log files will help you figure it out.

Great.  Tracing is powerful and a good next level troubleshooting step for generic errors.  I have to use it on our CRM system probably once a month.
