You are not following Richard Williams' recommendation here, 
so it is not surprising that it didn't work for you. 

dir /s 

is not a Stata command, but a command to the operating 
system. To run the command, you need to work within 
a shell, e.g. 

. !     <change to OS prompt> 

dir /s c:\stata8\ado\*.ado 

exit <return to Stata> 

Two different problems are 

1. Your files appear to be somewhere else. 

. adopath 

may help here. 

2. A mere list of filenames is not very informative. 
It will include many files that Stata uses, but that
you won't ever do.
