Thanks for the reply Mark, I assume the 10 posts first is to prevent abuse, but it is most unusual.

... yes I have clicked LSK1,2,3 for correct V1,VR,V2 speeds. I set the autothrottle to takeoff goaround power mode with it armed. Sometimes I will have clicked the Lnav and Vnav buttons so they are armed as well, but lately have been reluctant to do this as part of the process of trying to pinpoint the fault. I tried another variation of the 777 (PW - I had been using the GE model), and from a start in the sky it responded correctly except when on approach at under 2000 feet and seconds away from touch down I had to disable the autothrottle and take manual control - again because it dropped away down to 100 knots....

You say and it doesn't seem to follow the setting you set in the IAS Indicator - this has to be a bug doesn't it?? - Unless you setting is recognized as too low a setting for safe operation and it over rides that setting??

Yes. It's an unusual anti spam measure, but it's Captain Sim's choice to do it that way. Undecided

Hmm. I've never had the speed drop to 100 knots on either takeoff or climb, so I wonder why it's doing it. Maybe you could try doing a reinstall (select the Repair option) and see if that fixes the problem (assuming that you haven't already tried that).

While you could be right about the speed being unsafe, though 210 knots is some 30-40 knots below the maximum safe speed for the 5o flap setting, so I tend to think it could be a just the way that the A/T was programmed, because it does it regardless of whether I set the speed to V2+20 or 200-210 knots.

Ok, I didn't do a total uninstall, but just reinstalled 1.5.
Did a trial run taking off with TOGA then set speed to V2 +20 seem to work ok. Then programmed in a looping approach from the same runway. That worked perfectly... so I don't know... still a little unsure and will have to practice some more... but at least it all appeared to work correctly this time  - fingers crossed the reinstall was the resolution Smiley

Is the fact that I installed it for 5 times a problem?
From the second installation, I cliked "Repair", but it didn't do anything.

For activation problems, you need to do a complete uninstall/reinstall as described in KB #685:

Q: How to reinstall a product?

A:
Quite a number of "issues" are caused by using of outdated version of a product. Prior to submitting a support request please make sure you have the current version of a product.

To reinstall a product please perform the following steps in exact order:
Uninstall the product:
1. Go to Start> Programs> Captain Sim.
2. Select the product you wish to uninstall.
3. Click uninstall icon.

Install the product:
4. Make sure you have the qid=660]latest version of the product.
5. Run the product installer (the .exe file) and follow the prompts.
Please note: valid Order Number and Internet connection are required for installation/activation.

Please make sure you run the installation file as Administrator and that "User Account Control" is disabled (for Vista and Windows7), it limits admins ability to install programs.

If regular reinstall did not fix your problem you can try to clean registry.
Please be careful and do it on your own risk!
How to clean Registry:
1. Uninstall the product
2. Go to Start> Run. Type: regedit, click OK.
3. Find the product entry in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CaptainSim\ (please note, for Windows 64bit versions it is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\CaptainSim\)
For example: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CaptainSim\C130XPRO

Make sure you are going to delete correct folder!
4. Delete the product entry folder.
5. Restart your computer.
6. Install the product.




The blue text above, is what you need to do to fully uninstall the 777, then reinstall it requiring activation.  Wink

I hope that fixes your problem.


Well, I tried absolutely everything you told me to, but it did just like before. It's quite strange that it works on my older computer (even though the landing gear is missing)  Cry
Did anyone have this problem before?
Or, maybe there is a problem with my new PC, because all my add-ons aren't working.
I knew that I had to stick with the old computer  Smiley
But I hope that my CS 777 will work one day.

By saying "because all my add-ons aren't working", do you mean all you Captain Sim add-ons (assuming you have more than just the CS777), or all your add-ons, including any from other developers? If it's the latter, then I would say something is probably wrong with your FSX installation. Sad

No U/C in either B777 or L1011
Deleted both programs as you suggested. Now looking for the two files you suggest 'we' get rid of but can't fine the CS777 in Registry Editor...? Thanks

In the registry, you need to delete the following files:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CaptainSim\l112
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CaptainSim\x770
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CaptainSim\x772


If they are not there, then try in the Wow6432Node like this:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\CaptainSim\l112
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\CaptainSim\x770
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\CaptainSim\x772

Still having problems. No U/C. Again deleted existing  CS777 and CS1011. Tried to download the programs and again, I have to turn off my antivirus software. Then when I try to load the program I can't as again it is seen as a virus.
Tried to download "Service Pack 1.5' and even it is seen as a virus.  all of the CS programs are seen as a 'Win32/Heur" virus

I upgraded from my old cpu on Win XP to an i5 running Win 7; the GPU is the same NVIDIA GTS 250. Everything looks fine on the CS757 and 767 models, but the 777(v  1.6) is missing most of the wings (engines are displayed and it flies OK, though). I loaded the base pack (1.4), then then 1.5 and 1.6 updates. I'm wondering if DX11 has anything to do with it. Any ideas?
TIA...

Are you running the installer as an administrator? This is very important if your Operating System is Vista/Win7/Win8/Win8.1.

To do this, Right Mouse Click on the installers csx772_1400.exe and csx772_1600.exe, and select Run as administrator from the list (it should be the second one from the top).

NOTE. You do not need to install the 1.5 update (csx772_1500.exe)!

Thanks for the suggestions, Mark. After my initial post I found I didn't have Preview as DX10 checked. That displayed the aircraft properly again. Then did a reinstall as suggested to be sure it was done as admin. The remaining issues are my overhead switches don't work at all (I mean NONE of them. can't click on elec, hyd bleed air, etc). The ACE (shift-2) won't display. Have similar but different issues with the CS757 and 767, but other aircraft (Bonanza, Lancair, Epic LT) are all fine.

Could it be my graphics card? Never had any of these issues before moving to Win7 which makes me suspect a DX10/DX11 issue, except for the fact my other aircraft are ok. I've read about the 'DX10 Scenery Fix,' but not sure if that applies, here.

Thanks, again.

I doubt it. If the graphics card was causing a problem, I  don't it would be those sorts of problems.

I must admit that if I use Preview DirectX 10, I set it up with Steve FX - DX10 Scenery Fixer as it beats doing everything manually.

It could be that the activation hasn't worked 100% right, though the missing landing gear, buttons/switches not working and blacked out gauges are the signs, so it as me leaning towards that. Nowadays, I always use the Manual Offline Activation method and it has never failed me. Though to be honest, Instant Online Activation has never failed me. Te only other thing that ever happened, was that I once downloaded a faulty installer, and then had to download it again. That said, you might try that too. Use the Extended Download Service and download it again (disable your Anti-Virus software just in case it's interfering with the download), then see if it installs correctly from the new download.

I fully uninstalled and removed the registry entries. Re-downloaded and installed new, with online registration. Exact same result. Exterior looks fine (to clarify, the wings and gear reappeared when I selected 'Preview as DX10"). It's the overhead switches that don't work - not a single one of them, but those with switch covers will open.  Smiley Also, the ILS and Bleed Air panel (lower right of overhead) are missing. The CDU won't accept clicks, either. Also the panel switcher (shift-2) flashes, then disappears. Key commands all appear to be operable.

So you're able to fly CaptainSim aircraft on your Win 7 rig without 'Preview as DX10' checked? Interesting.

Seems like the only option left is to try 'Steve's DX10 Fixer' — I'd hate to buy it and discover it's NOT the solution. Will keep the forum posted.

It's worth noting that I'm having similar but fewer problems with the 757 and 767, but the overheads on those models are mostly working, and the panel switcher works. I'll post the specific issues in their respective forums.
