Install and Uninstall SharePoint Solutions via Powershell

This blog will outline the cmdlets to uninstall and install SharePoint solutions via Powershell.

For installing the solution, first we need to add the solution to the farm:-

Add-SPSolution -LiteralPath “Path where the solution is kept(D:\sharepoint.wsp)”

Final step will be to deploy the solution by using below command :

Install-SPSolution -Identity “Name of the solution(sharepoint.wsp)” -GACDeployment

In case we want to deploy the solution to different versions of SharePoint we have to use Compatibility level parameter.

Install-SPSolution -Identity “Name of the solution(sharepoint.wsp)” -GACDeployment -CompatibilityLevel “14,15”

For uninstallation,

First we need to uninstall the solution which will remove all the existing association from the farm.

Uninstall-SPSolution -Identity “Name of the solution(sharepoint.wsp)”

Post uninstalling, we need to complete the process by removing the solution from the farm.

Remove-SPSolution -Identity “Name of the solution(sharepoint.wsp)”

Hope this blog helps 🙂
