Cautious While Using With Visual Studio 2010

ALWAYS SAVE AND CLOSE straight away after you have finished designing the GUI editing of Main Form (The form that contains the ribbon control).

Don't Run (Press F5) The Application while the Main Form is open in Visual Studio 2010.

Or else, you might experience that the ribbon control has disappeared. You will end up redesigning/redraw the ribbon and reconnect all the events that associated with the ribbon.

Before using the ribbon, you have to patch the GlobalHook.cs.

There are some workout for this, please read this: Ribbon is slowing down application
