hope this helps...it helped me!

--------------------

As Richard Williams pointed out in an earlier response, there was a 
bug in 
Stata's -update- command when version 8.0 was originally released. 
The bug 
has subsequently been fixed but the only way to get the bug fix is to 
perform an update.  This is not, however, a Catch-22 situation. All 
you 
need to do is update your executable first. That is, type

. update executable

followed by

. update swap

You can then type

. update ado

or

. update all

to get the ado updates. After performing an update in this manner the 
-update- command in all of its variations should work as advertised.
