I’m testing my application on Vista/Server 2008 platform. It seems that the Ribbon does not work properly when Aero is enabled.
When adding a ribbon to the form, the title bar of the form disappears (as it should) and instead, the ribbon takes its place. In design time, everything looks fine. When running the application (again, with Aero enabled) the title bar of the form appears and the text of contextual tabs partially disappears or presented in the wrong location.

Yes, it also occurs when using your Ribbon UI Sample under the Aero theme settings.

Hi Roy,

Thank you for your report. The problem is that we failed to reproduce it on our Vista x64. Once Elegant Ribbon is installed, you can run the sample from "C:\Program Files (x86)\FOSS Software Inc\Elegant Ribbon\Samples\RibbonUISample\CS\bin\Release\RibbonUISample.exe" and see that it looks ok when the Aero is on (see the screeshot below). Could you help us reproduce it in some way?

It seems like the problem was with the installation of the workstation.

After a clean installation everything worked properly.

Thanks for the help,

Please let us know if you can reproduce the problem with our samples (e.g. Ribbon UI Sample). If not, could you just create a very simple project that demonstrates this bug and send it to us?
