Deactivate Features Deployment Step for SharePoint 2010

If you are developing SharePoint 2010 applications in Visual Studio 2010, you would wonder why there is no Deactivate Features deployment step available but only Activate Features deployment step.


This becomes a problem when you retract your solution as the features do not get deactivate from the site.

Let me introduce to my first Visual Studio 2010 Tools for SharePoint 2010 extension – Deactivate Features Deployment Step 

Deactivate Features Deployment Step is an extension for Visual Studio 2010 tools for SharePoint 2010. Use this deployment step to deactivate features in a local SharePoint site.


It is available for download at the Visual Studio Gallery or from your Visual Studio 2010 Extensions Manager
