Are you sure that the -version 8.0 not supported- error is coming from a
call to -predict-? I ask, because -predict- checks its caller's version.
I was curious about this, because of Stata's good version support. When I
tried setting my version to 8.0, running ivreg2, and then using predict,
I got no error.
Does the error happen under a specific set of circumstances?
