SPSolution.RetractLocal method

Retracts the solution from all web applications on the local server for trouble-shooting purposes.

Namespace:  Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration
Assembly:  Microsoft.SharePoint (in Microsoft.SharePoint.dll)

public void RetractLocal()

Caution noteCaution

The DeployLocal and RetractLocal() methods should be used only to temporarily deploy or retract a solution from a particular server for trouble-shooting purposes. At all other times, the front-end web servers must be identically configured.

When a solution is retracted, all files for that solution are retracted, even if another solution points to the same file. This can be avoided by ensuring that each solution points to a unique set of files.

By default, no application pools are reset after deploying or retracting a solution using the object model. To reset the application pool manually, you can stop and restart the application pool for the web application to which you are deploying or retracting the solution.

To retract a language package, see SPSolutionLanguagePack.
