A colleague of mine had the same problem. It turned out that there are two
versions of -gam- available: one from STB, and one from SSC (which is more
recent). We have deleted the already installed gam-files, and installed
the SSC version. After that, everything worked fine. You can get the SSC
version by typing:

-ssc desc gam-

and then

-ssc get gam-

Alternatively, you can manually download the files from here:

good luck!

It is often the case that the SSC version of an item is later, and contains fixes, that the STB or SJ version does not. Every SSC item contains a Distribution-Date which is its date of last modification on the archive.

Please do NOT download materials via a web browser from the URL given--ESPECIALLY if you are using Windows. There is very little chance that the .hlp file will survive on that OS, and a good chance that the .ado files will not be properly transferred. Please use the SSC command (e.g. ssc install gam, replace) to handle this task reliably.
