CRM 2011 Activity Feed cannot be deleted

Playing with the new activity feed R8 beta solution recently. Somehow hit an error prompting me "The Solution Activity Feeds cannot be deleted. The following components are required by other components in the system." when I try to remove the managed solution.

By viewing the details, we can see the dependencies.
Disable the message step for activity feed managed solution.
For this case, we have to navigate to the "Activity Feeds configuration", then delete the records inside.
Followup with Publish all entities...

Now you should be able to uninstall it. :)


  1. I accidentally reverted my sitemap.xml file to its orginal state, and have lost the ability to manage that solution. Do you know how I could modify my sitemap in order to address this?
