Removing previously deployed DLLs in the GAC

Aug 19, 2014 at 12:43 PM

I am using WSPBuilder to build a WSP package to be deployed on to Sharepoint. Currently, we have updated some of the 3rd party dependencies in our solution. Basically, we have updtaed our dependency from DLL A.dll to another DLL say B.dll (from a completely different vendor). Now when we install the solution using the installer created by WSPBuilder; I see that both A.dll and B.dll co-exist. This is causing a problem with my solution.

Is there a way in WSPBuilder to uninstall or clean-up previously installed DLLs in the GAC related to a sharepoint solution and then go ahead to install the new DLLs?

I tried changing the solution ID; it does not help.
