In our initial Office 2003 Deployment, smart tags were not installed. I used the Office Resource Kit to create the MST. There is now a requirement to install it.

What is the best method to do this? When we try and use the Resource kit to install the smart tags, there is a message that this must be installed via the Control Panel.

As an alternative to using a transform, you could always run the Custom Maintenance Wizard from the Office 2003 Editions resource kit to create a CMW file.

On the Set Feature Installation States page, you would set the Installation state of the Smart Tags feature so that it should be installed then save the changes in a CMW file which can be applied using the maintwiz.exe tool.
