I updated my Stata 7 and now the endogenous option is available.  However,
I've had trouble updating the executable.  I am supposed to follow the
instructions below but it did not go well.  I had to reinstall Stata and do
the update process again but have not been able to update the  executable...

    1.  Exit Stata
    2.  Change to C:\Stata\
    3.  Copy wstata.exe to wstata.old
    4.  Copy wstata.bin to wstata.exe
    5.  Try Stata
    6.  Later, erase wstata.old if satisfied
        or copy wstata.old back to wstata.exe

Does any one know how to do this properly?  It seems very easy but...
Monica, perhaps you could provide a few more details as to what step it is that things break down, or what error messages you are getting as you try to do this?

You do need read/write access to your C: drive. Sometimes people don't have that if they are working on some sort of shared cluster machine.
