How to activate Ribbon UI of Windows explorer in Windows 8 build 7850 ?

“OK. This may be my last work on M1 but I managed to get Explorer Ribbon working, here it is

create such a key in registry: HKEY_CLASS_ROOT\CLSID\{4F12FF5D-D319-4A79-8380-9CC80384DC08}

create a string value in this key called “AppID”, set its value to “{9198DA45-C7D5-4EFF-A726-78FC547DFF53}”

now start a new explorer window have to fireup visual studio to get this one right, phew. http://tinypic.com/r/2e2m05v/7
