I've just installed the content deployer portion of the SmartTarget 2013 installation and found that my content is being deployed with the incorrect .net user control tag:

<smarttarget:ComponentPresentation ...  />

instead of

<tridion:ComponentPresentation ... />

Having checked the output of the .aspx file this is happening during the tcdl resolving stage of deployment and definitely not something incorrectly output from the result of modular templating.

This problem can be resolved by simply checking the cd_deployer_conf.xml file within the deploying application, the incorrect property

  <property Name="aspnet.tagprefix" Value="smarttarget" /> 

Should become:

  <property Name="aspnet.tagprefix" Value="tridion" /> 

Note: The incorrect Value attribute of "smarttarget"

Once you've saved the file, restart the deployer application and republish a page to check the correct output is produced.

Thanks to Nuno Linhares for the help resolving this one :)
