st: Windows update woes
Can someone out there who understands how Windows hides its filenames
please help this chap? The preponderance of questions about 'why
doesn't the ivendog routine work' come from Windows users who can't
fiigure out how to update their executable (so have never done
so)--three last week alone.

Many thanks for your help.
You are right. I am using Windows and did update all.
I tried to fellow the instructions, but I cannot find wstata.old, this
after several times of update.
So, I just copy wstata.bin to paste on wstata.exe. The copy of
wstata.bin apprears. But it doesnot work. When I did again update
query, the version of installed stata executable is still on 15 dec,
2000, but the last available is 11 jun 2002. How can I do to have the
last version of stata executable which has the update take effect?

My guess is that you are (1) using Windows, (2) did 'update all'
which downloaded the executable, and (3) did not follow the
instructions regarding renaming .bin to .exe, etc. at the DOS level.
This last step seems to be very difficult for many Windows users to
deal with. If you do 'query born', you will probably find that your
executable dates from 2001. If this is the case, ivendog (and a
number of other things) will not work. You must update the version of
the Stata executable that you are running to have the update take
