This is one of the biggest pains in the you know what about RsLogix 5000. To delete a program 1. Go to the properties of the task it is associated with and remove it from the schedule 2. It will now be in unscheduled programs 3. Delete all routines of program 4. Delete all program tags of program 5. Cross Reference program and make sure it is not referenced anywhere else 6. Delete the program

I don't think there is a more simple solution but I think Rockwell could make a more automated solution. The Program does have to be unscheduled from the task before it can be deleted or it would cause an error Having to delete the routines and program tags does keep you from accidentally deleting the program and it is necessary to delete these since they are associated with the program. I think they could provide a warning on a delete of the program and automaticly delete the program tags, routines, and unschedule it from the main task. It is probably on there list but there are other features I would rather see done first so I wouldn't bug them with that. It's the only way I have ever found. Let me know if you find another way
