Attempting to download -tab_chi-, I tried to action -ssc copy []- and this
is what I got:

. cd c:\ado\plus
c:\ado\plus

. ssc copy tab_chi
ssc copy: "tab_chi" not found at SSC, type -findit tab_chi-
r(601);

Going the -findit- route brings me back to my original problem, viz.:

checking tab_chi consistency and verifying not already installed...
installing into c:\ado\plus\...
could not rename c:\ado\plus\stata.trk to c:\ado\plus\backup.trk
r(699);

I'm beginning to feel that it's not my week.
