I've just discovered I have the same problem. After trying to download
-makematrix- and -tableplot-, I get the same error message as that
displayed by Semilla in her first post.
This make no sense. My system is using less than 25% of its capacity. I
went to http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/data/statatmp.html and followed
the instructions for Win2K users (i.e., setting up a STATATMP directory: I
used the same path as the pre-existing temp files for Stata). This hasn't
made any difference. I even deleted a busload of .dta files I didn't need
to save space. No joy there, either.
In the meantime, I'm copying .ado and .hlp files from the SSC wesbite into
my C:/ado/plus directory (analogous to what Semilla is now doing, I
suspect), but I don't want to keep doing that since the automatic install
procedure ought to work. It worked last week, for instance, when I -ssc
inst panelauto-. I fail to see why I shouldn't work now.
