smart tag sdk

P: n/a
Hi,

I have downloaded the 2003 Smart Tag SDK and am attempting to run its
samples. I installed the sdk and registered the visual basic.net
sample. However, no office apps (word, excel, ppt) recognize the sample
smart tags that should be installed.

I have checked and double-checked the paths in the registry entries and
in the security settings batch file, and they are correct. Also, I have
read everything I can find on msdn about it, but the troubleshooting
advice is minimal.

Does anyone have any suggestions for getting these managed dlls to work
correctly? Am I right in my understanding that there need be no
registry entry other than
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Common \Smart
Tag\Actions\SimpleVBNetST.VBNetSTAction

(and same for Recognizer, too)?

Thanks so much for any help you might have--I'm running out of ideas!

Here's what I ended up doing, if anyone is interested.

I made sure that the office PIAs were installed, but that didn't work.
So I uninstalled a copy of Visual Studio 2005 Beta that I had on the
machine (along with all of its associated installations, such as .net
framework 2.0 beta). I also uninstalled office 2003. Then I
re-installed office 2003, and the samples worked.

Stupidly, I forgot to check if they worked after uninstalling VS 2005
but before uninstalling office--I suspect they probably did. Oh well...

I hope that info is useful to someone someday.
