I think this is good time to post stsadm and PowerShell commands for adding , deploying/Installing , retracting/uninstalling and removing SharePoint solutions (wsp).

Commands are quiet similar just with different names. PowerShell works on SharePoint 2010 where as stsadm works on both SharePoint 2007 and SharePoint 2010.

Stsadm Commands

Stsadm commands are executed from hive/bin.

Add Solution :

stsadm.exe -o addsolution -filename “complete name of SharePoint solution with extension”

For example :

stsadm.exe -o addsolution -filename “SharePoint.CustomProject.wsp”

Deploy Solution :

stsadm.exe -o deploysolution -name “complete name of SharePoint solution with extension” -immediate  -allowGacDeployment

For example :

stsadm.exe” -o deploysolution -name “SharePoint.CustomProject.wsp” -immediate  -allowGacDeployment

Retract Solution :

stsadm.exe” -o retractsolution -name “complete name of SharePoint solution with extension” –immediate

For example :

Delete Solution :

stsadm.exe” -o deletesolution -name “complete name of SharePoint solution with extension”

For example :

stsadm.exe” -o deletesolution -name “SharePoint.CustomProject.wsp”
