Can Mail, Address Book and iCal only be reinstalled from 'Optional Installs' package on Tiger install disk if OSX 10.4 has NOT been upgraded?

After deleting aps some time ago, I now reinstalled Mail Address Book and iCal from the Optional Installs package on my 10.4 install disk.


But when I try to open Address Book and iCal, nothing opens.

And when I try to open Mail, I get error message -

"You cannot use the application "Mail" with this version of Mac OSX."


Are there any separate 10.4.11 install packages for Mail, Address Book and iCal?


Unless I absolutely have to, I'd rather not do an archive and install and then have to sit through the updates.

PowerMac, Mac OS X (10.4.11), G5 Dual 2Ghz, 6GB (PowerMac7.3)
