Deleting Solutions

P: n/a
Greetings,

I can't figure out what to search on to find the documentation on how to
completely delete a "solution" from VS.NET 2003. I have no problem at
all deleting projects, but even if I delete the entire underlying
directory structure, the solutions won't go away.

Anybody know how to do that?

P.S. The reason I want to know is that I'm new to VS.NET, and I make a
lot of mistakes getting projects/solutions started correctly. I hate
burning a namespace just because I made a mistake.

Format c:

what do you mean you can't delete a solution? can't you find the sln
file and del it?

Hi Rick,
It sounds like you're deleting the solution correctly. What are you seeing
or experiencing that makes you concerned that the solution has not been
deleted?

if the solution stills shows up in the "recent history" list does not
mean it is still there.

second, if its a web app then you may have to go to \inetpub\wwwroot
folder and delete it there (or thru iisadmin mmc snap in)

Thanks, all (Calvin, Christine, Kairi) for your comments.

One interesting thing about deleting virtual directories with the IIS
administration panel: It doesn't just delete the *virtual* directory.
It deletes the underlying physical directory, too. <snif>

So if you had, like, some source files that were ok, but your
web/virtual setup was screwed up, and you deleted the web site in IIS
MMC snap-in, and then you went back to retrieve the files, well...
