Using WAB 1.2 and I have two apps that were created for testing purposes. Now I want to delete them and they will not delete. In teh Node dialog window, it reports that "Remove app failed, unable to remove app files. id: 2.

Is it advisable to manually delete the folder from ..\server\apps\id# ?

Michael,

   Normally you get this error if you have a windows explorer window open with the folder or a subfolder of it selected. You can safely delete the \server\apps\ folder and then attempt to delete it in the WAB again and it will successfully remove the app.
