Hi Steve,

Yes, our Metro themes will render the same on any system that supports WPF, including Windows 7.

Thanks for the quick reply. What does it mean if my outer RibbonWindow is not reflecting the style changes? I see the Ribbon and Backstage changing but not the main window.

Hi Steve,

If you are using the latest version and build then it should be updating if you set ThemeManager.CurrentTheme.  Prior builds might not have had RibbonWindow supporting the Metro theme yet.  Make sure you disable glass via RibbonWindow.IsGlassEnabled = false too.

The latest build of this product (v2019.1 build 0683) was released 1 month ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
