    I installed R.A.D. RibbonBar for evaluation, and after uninstalling it, I'm still getting the security warning about having a modified project file. Specifically, after clicking More Details I get this:

    An item referring to the file "" was found in the project file.....

    This is more of an annoyance than anything, but reinstalling Visual Studio didn't solve the problem, which makes me think the change is residing in MSBuild somewhere, or in the registry.

    Thanks in advance for any ideas or help you can offer.

    Hi Jay,

    The problem that you experience seems to be in the project file, not in the Visual Studio itself.
    Open the .proj file using Notepad (or some other text editor, as this file is in xml format). Then try to locate the item causing trouble and remove it. Just be careful to remove the correct xml tags as you can break the file otherwise.

    Please, let us know if that helps.

    I get this error every time I create a new project, so the problem seems to be in whatever changes to a default project ribbonbar makes.

    I have checked the .csproj file, and it doesn't appear to have any weird entries, or anything out of the ordinary. But project files refer to all sorts of build settings and other things that reside in other places outside the .csproj.

    Since I have deleted all visible references to RibbonBar / Visual Studio, and the problem persists after reinstalling VS, I'm convinced that whatever has changed is in the registry.

    Is there a listing of what keys in the registry Ribbon Bar modifies upon install / uninstall?

    Hello fraeone,

    RadRibbonBar does not modify registry entries.

    You mentioned that you are using the RadRibbonBar version that comes with the VS2005 Express package, so there might be some entries added by the installer of the VS package (unfortunately, we have no control over that). Our controls do not modify registry data.

    What I can suggest is the following: remove the RibbonBar from your system. If the VS2005 problem persists, we will ask you to reinstall it again. We know we should not ask you to do this, but the problem relates to your registry and there is no other way to fix it.

    Please, download the latest version of RadControls for WinForms, which includes RadRibbonBar. Install it and try it instead. If all goes well, please write back and let us know.
      

    Best wishes,
