Hey guys, have you try this style (ribbon window), on Windows XP OS?
It's a disaster! Unfortunately, my customers, still use right now windows XP, and because of this issue, I really don't want to use this toolkit any more.

I found in the MSDN for UIRibbon.dll, which is the DLL on Windows7 that delivers the Ribbon UI. It lists these......

Minimum supported client
Windows 7, Windows Vista with SP2 and Platform Update for Windows Vista [desktop apps only]

Win XP does not supports .net 4.5 so you can´t use it on Win XP. If you use some other 3rd party Ribbon control, you have to distribute its containing library with your application.

I have never tried but see if portable application can work.
