I work with mac OS 9.2 and Stata 7.
I want to learn how to perform a manual update of Stata.

I downloaded the appropriate files from www.stata.com.
After UnStuffing the files,
a file Stata is on the desktop and
a folder newado is on the desktop.
I backup those files.

The file Stata on the desktop is used to update the Stata executable.
The manual update for Stata executable was successfull.

I can not update the Ado-file.  I get the message:
Do nothing; all files up-to-date.
The problem is that my 
Ado-files are not up-to-date (15 Dec 2000).

If I perform an automatic update from www.stata.com,
I get the message:
currently installed:  15 Dec 2000
latest available:     09 Aug 2002
Recommendation
    update ado-files

Manual update tells me:  Do nothing; all files up-to-date.
Automatic update tells me:  Recommendation update ado-files.

What is wrong?
