    uninstalling SEO Checker breaks

    I have need to uninstall SEO checker on a site as it doesn't work well with Vorto for multi-lingual. Uninstalling it breaks the site, as others have found, so I have gone through and removed all references to SEO Checker and now the site at least works.

    However...  Now URL Rewriting has stopped working completely. It being a multi-lingual site, I have a few redirects that need to take place and nothing works any more. Reinstalling SEO Checker fixed the issue, but I can't track down what it is I'm missing.

    Any thoughts?

    I think uninstalling leaves some stuff in web.config so not sure but it's working now again or do you still have issues?

    Alas I have combed the web.config and it has removed the SEOChecker references. Compared it with the live version of the site with it still installed.

    I have also found that disabling the SEO Checker URL rewrite option in the configuration options leaves urlrewriting not working, like the ~/config/urlrewriting.config file is not being hit. I see that SEO Checker has it's own urlrewriting handler, it feels very much like this is has removed references to the standard urlrewriting handlers, but they are still in the web.config file?

    EDIT: It's version 1.8 I'm trying to uninstall on a 7.2.1 site
