Can't remove a feature
Posted on 2013-01-25
I'm doing a tutorial on features. Somehow, I managed to add two features at the site collection level with the same exact display name in the features management window. I don't know how that can possibly happen, but I saw two features with the same name in features management.
I deactivated both features, then went to the features folder and saw one folder that matched the name of both features. I ran an uninstallfeature in stsadm and it succeeded.
Saw only one copy of the feature in features management instead of two. Ran uninstallfeature with the same name again hoping it would uninstall the remaining feature, but it said that feature is already uninstalled.
I removed the feature's folder under the features folder and now I'm still stuck with one remaining feature in the features management that I can actually still activate and deactivate. But I can't find the features folder that this has to be using. There is no folder left in features that matches it's name because I removed it. So how can I get rid of this?
