st: Reversing an -update-

The post here below made me wonder whether it is possible to reverse an
executable update manually.
If I remember well, in Stata 7 the swapping of the executable was done by
hand, so the .old executable would have remained in the windows recycle bin.
What happens to the old exectuble in Stata 8 (once Stata has restarted and
has determined that it is working properly)? Is it erased from the disk?

Best,
Renzo Comolli

The update that became available at 3:02pm CDT (20:02 GMT) yesterday
contains
a bug in the Windows version that could cause Stata to crash when using the
Viewer.  We have identified the problem and a new version fixing the bug
will
be made available for update later today or tomorrow morning.  Until then,
web
updates will be unavailable.

If you are running Windows and updated Stata between 3:02 CDT (20:02 GMT)
yesterday and 9:54am CDT (14:54 GMT) today, you should avoid using the
Viewer,
and you should -update- again later today or tomorrow.

We will let you know the minute the fixed version is available for -update-.

Those running Macs or Unix/Linux machines are not affected and will not need
to -update- again.
