Thank you with your reply that you are working on it.  I also have your CS757 and when an update was available, and I tried to fly that plane, it would pop up with a web site to notify of the update.  Will we receive that kind of notification on the CS777?

A little confused about this hotfix.  When I ran it (v.0301)I got a message back from the installer that my base installer was not the latest and that I should get the latest from the extended download service.  When I did that it downloaded version v.0400. Do I still need to run the hotfix for the stuck AT fix? Or is it already included on v.0400?

Thanks

The same thing that happened to you, happened to me, so I just installed v0.4, and did a short test flight. The aircraft did not overspeed on reaching cruise altitude.

Note. This was a short, low altitude (FL200) test, and a longer higher altitude test will be done to verify that it really is fixed without installing the 0301 hotfix.

The plane is more stable now but have you noticed the herky jerky motion of the yoke in autopilot,  when changing course it is still a bit unstable but does straighten itself out eventually.

I'm sorry, but I could be blind.  I could not find a link for this update v0.0400.  Could someone lead the blind to that link?  Thanks.

It was available on your CS website account under extended download service. You need to login, click on your name, click on the corresponding purchase, make note of the order number and click on Extended Download Service, enter your order number and the capcha info click submit, then finally download the new installer.  Shocked

Thanks.  I found that update and downloaded it.  But in trying to install it, I received an error message.  It goes to the captain sim site, and the following message appears. [b][Oops! That page can’t be found.
It looks like nothing was found at this location. Maybe try a search?/b]  what could I be doing wrong?

You don't need the 0.4 via EDS.
If you want to try the A/T fix then all you need is this https://www.captainsim.org/forum/csf.pl?num=1556463641/17#17

I downloaded the 0.301 file and tried to install it and got the following message:

Major version of the expansion is outdated  1. Login to your profile 2. Navigate: Product Name>Extended Download Service 3. Downloan and install current major version of the Expansion and 4. Install this update.  I am not sure what I have installed, but believe it to be the csy777_300exe.

Ignore #4 because from EDS you got the 0.4 which is newer than the 0.301.

Thank you very much for the explanation.  I uninstalled my previous versions of the 777-200 and the 777-4
300 and installed the .4 version of both and so far, the 777-300 is holding the authothrottle.  Very good.  Still have to test it on the 777-200, but assume it will work as that is the base pack for the 300 version.  Thank you very much for the turnaround for the fix on this.  One thing, however, and this is a small point, the 777-300 is holding at my designated altitude of 32000 feet, but the FMC is programmed for a mach speed of .833 and it is actually holding at .824.
