It must be 64-bit problem. I have tested 1.8.8 on XP x86 SP3 and it
works just fine. Then I made a fresh install of x64 SP2 (which is, as
you remember, the same as SP3 for x86) and it shows up like that:


 I have even tried copying over TortoiseMerge.exe from the x86
installation but it still has that problem.

... Problem solved

Thanks for your tip about registry Stefan although it didn't work at
first because you made a mistake, the key's named UseRibbons, not
UseRibbon. I looked that up on x86 installation. Once I created it the
interface went back to normal.

Still got some questions though.

1. Can you or somebody else confirm that ribbons work on 1.8.x on a
64-bit XP? Not just 32-bit.

2. Isn't it a bug that should be fixed? At minimum it should default
to disabling ribbons because at its current state you can't even
access the settings window where it can be disabled. It's all just
messed up. I don't think people who are still on XP will be upset with
the ribbons gone.
