This sounds not like a Stata problem but more like a windows-problem that
might be fixed as follows:
and that is because it seems impossible to create wstata.old. Also it I
failed to copy stata.bin to wstata.exe even when I decided
to ignore step 3. I tried to move file, copy, rename and all that but in
vail. Is there something I am missing?
In the windows explorer, you probably have the default option turned on
that says "Hide file extensions for known file types". In my Windows2000
this option is available through the menu-item -Tools/Folder options- and
then look at the tab -View- .
Now turn off the 'hide known file extensions- and then try again.
That should work. If it doesn't you might need to ask your system
administrator to help you out. The heart of your problem namely is in
Windows XP, not in Stata 7.
