foreach (System.String entityName in entitiesWithRibbons)
 entRibReq.EntityName = entityName;
 RetrieveEntityRibbonResponse entRibResp = (RetrieveEntityRibbonResponse)_serviceProxy.Execute(entRibReq);

 System.String entityRibbonPath = Path.GetFullPath(exportFolder + "\\" + entityName + "Ribbon.xml");
 File.WriteAllBytes(entityRibbonPath, unzipRibbon(entRibResp.CompressedEntityXml));
 //Write the path where the file has been saved.

'Retrieve system Entity Ribbons
Dim entRibReq As New RetrieveEntityRibbonRequest() With {.RibbonLocationFilter = RibbonLocationFilters.All}

For Each entityName As String In entitiesWithRibbons
 entRibReq.EntityName = entityName
 Dim entRibResp As RetrieveEntityRibbonResponse = CType(_serviceProxy.Execute(entRibReq), RetrieveEntityRibbonResponse)

 Dim entityRibbonPath As String = Path.GetFullPath(exportFolder &amp; "\" &amp; entityName &amp; "Ribbon.xml")
 File.WriteAllBytes(entityRibbonPath, unzipRibbon(entRibResp.CompressedEntityXml))
