SharePoint: Solution still deployed after retracting it

Solution still deployed after retracting

You maybe have stumbled upon this scenario: Solution still deployed after retracting it.

After you have retracted your SharePoint solution in Central Administration, the solution flips back to deployed?

The issue seems to be that when you have deployed your solution with –allcontenturls, which means it will be deployed to the Central Administration web application as well, you must specifically retract the solution from the Central Administration web application.

  2. Retract the solution from the Central Administration web application specifically
