Hi All:
The Stata that  I'm having problems with is a networked version (a
Version 8.0).  I have switched to a standalone version (a Version 7.0),
have also excluded any version statement from my program, and I don't
have the problem anymore with either IVREG2 or IVREG3 (that Mark sent
me).  I've contacted the IT at my workplace about the problem with the
network version.

Thanks everyone for the tremendous help and advice.  Really impressed
with Stata and I'm glad I convinced my group to use it.

Thanks again, and especially to Mark for everything.
Keep up the excellent work.

John

I guess that -ivreg2- is calling up 
an up-to-date Stata official ado file which 
in turn is expecting to talk to the
latest executable, but it can't find it, 
as it hasn't been updated. 

I guess also that fiddling with -ivreg2- 
or the way that it's called will do 
nothing to solve this systemic problem. 

Perhaps you are using a networked version 
of Stata and thus not in charge of 
your own set-up. Or otherwise 
you will have to get someone to 
explain what to do. For example, 
hereabouts, there are limits on 
installing executables which affect 
some users.
