If you want to make Windows 7 Ribbon and add it in your application, give Visual Ribbon Creator a shot. It is developed for VC++ programmers only. Ribbon is a great feature in Windows 7 and deserves an appreciation.
This tool generates Ribbon code, DLL, and Code Snippers for sample usage. It requires Visual Studio 2005 or 2008 and Windows 7 SDK. The app creates standard Windows 7 Ribbon using Win32 only and is very different than Visual Studio 2010 editor which creates MFC/Office Ribbon.
Please note that you should use this tool only and only if you are doing Win32/x64 directly.
