A Windows 7 interopability pack, known as the Windows 7 Client Platform Update, is to be released alongside Windows 7 in October of this year. This update provides down-level support for the Windows Ribbon framework and will be made available from the Microsoft Download Center and as a 'Recommended update' on Windows Update.

The Windows Ribbon framework is not provided as a redistributable. ISVs need to direct users to Windows Update or the Download Center, or silently call Windows Update as part of an application setup.

The Windows Ribbon framework is supported by the following platforms through the Windows 7 Client Platform Update:
