-swboot- was written by Joanne Garrett.

My guess is that the temporary file created by
Stata has a space embedded within the complete file
path; and this arises under some flavo[u]r of Windows;
and that this is being misunderstood.

Try editing references to `tempds' in a copy of
-swboot.ado- as follows:

line 68

is now
	quietly save `tempds', replace
should be
	quietly save `"`tempds'"', replace

line 177

is now
     quietly use `tempds', clear
should be
	quietly use `"`tempds'"', clear

Save this file as, say, -swbooth.ado-, making
sure that it starts

program define swbooth

then

. discard

and try again with -swbooth-.
