A quick comment on the use of the winexec procedure to call Stat-Transfer.

When this is done, be aware that Stat-Transfer runs outside of Stata.
Because of this, Stata and Stat-Transfer run simultaneously, not necessarily
sequentially. The implication of this is that a Stata program may use the
output of the Stat-Transfer as a input, but Stat-Transfer might not have
finished running by the time that Stata is looking for the input. The only
way that I found to avoid a problem is to pause Stata. 

Does anybody have any other thoughts?

Bryan
