Removing Invalid SharePoint 2007 Features

Removing Invalid SharePoint 2007 Features or features without a feature.xml:

1. Run the WssAnalyzeFeatures tool and view the Problems Log for invalid feature id (guids)

2. Try running STSADM -o deactivatefeature -id %featureIdFromLogFile% -force

3. Try running STSADM -o uninstallfeature -id %featureIdFromLogFile% -force

4. Run the WssAnalyzeFeatures tool and see if the problems we’re resolved.

5. If feature can’t be removed or is in a subsite for a failed WSP solution uninstall…try running the WssRemoveFeatureFromSite to forcefully invalid old features.

5. Remove the feature ID’s until WssAnalyzeFeatures shows no errors.
