I am running CM 2012 R2. I have an application that I can not delete because it tells me that there are 5 task sequences dependent on it. I am able to retire it though.
I removed all revisions and even deleted the deployment type.
I have tried this script http://blogs.msdn.com/b/customer_reviews_of_stb_products/archive/2013/07/09/powershell-with-system-center-configuration-manager-2012-shortens-long-administrative-efforts-with-task-sequence-dependencies-by-dujon-walsham.aspx , but it
does not find any dependent task sequences.
I have also utilized a console extension from David Obrien http://www.david-obrien.net/2014/05/configmgr-console-extension-find-referenced-task-sequences/ that does a check for dependencies, and it reported that there were none for that application.
Attempting to remove via the Remove-CMApplication cmdlet displays the same dependency message. Any one have any other ideas?

I have verified that there are no more revisions of the application.

I was actually able to query for my application via the Get-CMTaskSequence cmdlet to see that my application was actually still referenced in a couple of task sequences. Once those were modified I could delete the application
