Hi,

I am using the ribbonbar in Visual Studio 2008 (vb.net)

I created a RibbonWindow where i made 2 tabs, Home and General.
(just like the example)
The Home tab is shown.

When I now click on the General Tab, the content(group info) is not shown design time?????
When I open the C# example and click on different Tabs, they show the content properly.

Hi Willie,

We haven't heard reports of any problems like this before. Can you email our support address with a simple sample project that shows the issue so we can take a look? Thanks!

Hi,

I copied the project to a local drive and opened it and than it works fine.
So there must be an issue on my vista machine.

The project i am working on is on a network drive W:

Is there anybody that experienced the same problem?

Willie,

Ahh, that may make sense then. Anytime you run .NET apps off of network drives, there are security restrictions and other functionality limitations imposed. We've run into lots of issues in the past with this. Make sure you always run things locally as you found.

Do you mean the actipro dll's or the whole project?

Willie,

We don't test off of network drives so I don't know the extent of what you can and can't do. All I know is that anytime we've run things off of them we typically encounter problems, even when not using our controls. So it's best to run things locally.

unfortunaly i do need to use my visual studio project from a network drive.

The solution is to reference the actipro files from the local drive.
My project can stay on the server pc.

We have a separate machine from which we compile. That is why i would like to have all the files on the server pc along with the project.
The latest build of this product (v2019.1 build 0681) was released 1 month ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
