We have multiple user Unix licenses for Stata-SE and Stata and don't want
to convert everything to Stata-SE for financial reasons. We want to run
both on the same big computer, but are having a problem. Even if we
install the programs in different directories, it seems that both programs
look in the same directories in the same order for the stata.lic file. The
directories are first /usr/local/stata8 and then /usr/local/stata. So
whichever program has its license in /usr/local/stata8 will run correctly,
and the other will not find its license. Does anyone have a workaround for
this? Is there any way to affect where stata looks for the license, such
as an environment variable, or a command line argument?

[Most requests here at NBER for Stata-SE are from users with fixed effect
models who expect to add a dummy variable for each respondent in a panel.
They are usually easily convinced that this is not necessary. However
sometimes users want to interact a time trend with the fixed effect. Is
there a way to estimate such a model without adding a variable for each
respondent?]
