In VSTO I have an Excel 2007 Add-In that loads in a ribbon with other add-ins.
What do I need to change so that it appears in its own ribbon?

In the ribbon properties, change the ControlType property from "Office" to "Custom" (you may need to expand the ControlID node); set the ControlID to something other than "TabAddins". Your controls should then appear on a different tab.
