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.
