Hi,

How would I add office 2007 ribbon bar into my mfc application. I use Visual Studio 2005 currently, c++. I don't have office installed.
Do I need to download some libs?
I've found this http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=4329D9E9-4D11-46A5-898D-23E4F331E9AE&displaylang=en#filelist but don't know where to install it...
Any help appreciated. Thank you

I think that the easiest way is to use VS2008 and the Visual C++ feature pack:

Could I use vs 2005 somehow. It's not necessary to use ribbon bar UI for me, but it looks nice. The version of VS must be 2005 for me, so I can include ribbon bar only when it would be possible using vs2005. Thanks

VS 2005 doesn't support the office look and feel MFC UI components.  That, as alb66 says, requires VS 2008.  Don't forget that VS 2005 was released before Office 2007

(unfortunately the free, express, version of VC 2008 doesn't include support for MFC - you need to purchase one of the 'higher' versions such as professional).

With VS2005 you can use a commercial product like the following:
