Hello, I've VS2010 and i've downloaded Ribbon from here. When i try debug and compile your project or another Ribbon's project designed by me, i see an error message. You can see the error message in http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/GTzGjFqF7jvQWUkOuldLCQ?authkey=Gv1sRgCK6g68Lq5IeJUw&feat=directlink . I have also Windows 7 SDK and I try reinstall SDK but the problem continues. I never had this problem.

I'm not familiar with this error.

If you have a 64bit windows, check out this discussion: http://windowsribbon.codeplex.com/Thread/View.aspx?ThreadId=77456

Also since you work on VS2010, maybe some folders are not where I expect them to be, check the pre-build events and make sure all the EXEs I use (UICC, RC, LINK) are available in the given locations.

I cheked it, and the EXEs that you use are availables in given locations, but problem continues. I have a 32bit Windows.

I see now that the pre build commands also return errors.

I suggest you open a visual studio command line (the one with all the environment variables set)
and run the pre build steps manually. It usually offers more error information to the screen.
Maybe if we understand what the problem with the prebuild steps we will figure out the other problem.
