Complete Library for using the Windows 7 Ribbon from C#, including 18 samples and 21 blog posts documenting the Ribbon features

First, I want to announce that the Windows Ribbon for WinForms library is no longer beta.

Since now, the library covers every feature available by the Windows ribbon, I think it would be useful to provide a table of contents for the posts I've written during the development process. Each post serves as documentation on how to use one or two ribbon features.

That's it for now,
Arik Poznanski.

QuestionWindows 8 with SDK7 or SDK8 Pin

Hello Mr. Arik Poznanski.

I am realy glad with this article about the Ribbon.

I just have one problem: I was using it perfectly with Windows 7 x86 but I have a new laptop with Windows 8 x64 and I cannot even install Windows SDK 8 (or 7) successfully.

With those SDK's installed, I have the following directories:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0A
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v8.0
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v8.0A

I cannot find UICC.exe (for example) which is needed to compile the RibbonMarkup.xml to RibbonMarkup.ribbon
I used a program called RibbonExplorer where I must write the fullpath to the UICC.exe and I cannot find it.

Another problem is that the project RibbonGenerator has a Setup that does not load because I have Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 and this version of VS does not have this kind of Setup Deployment.
It gives me the error: "Cannot find custom tool 'RibbonGenerator' on this system."

1st - How can I install the Windows SDK 8 successfully? Is there any trick? What am I doing wrong?
2nd - Do you have a newer version of RibbonLib for Windows 8 x86/x64?

Please help me.

Thanks in advance
