a double click starts a batch file.
I myself found the help on the webpage you quoted a bit confusing. You have to make sure, that your batchfile actually looks like this

set STATATMP=c:\temp2
cd c:\data
"C:\Program Files\Stata8\wsestata.exe"

This assumes, that you want C:\temp2 to be your temporaray directory, your data is stored in C:\data (better: you want this to be your current directory when you start Stata) and that your Stata is installed in the folder "C:\Program Files\Stata8" and you're using Stata 8SE.
If something is different in your case, you have to make changes accordingly.
Note, that you have to put double quotes around path-/filenames that contain spaces.
This batch will set your tempdir and launch Stata.

Hope, it helps

I am dealing with a big data set and Stata reports the following error
insufficient disk space

I have tried to set a temporary fix for Windows users(as explained on your web page

I created a .BAT file, which I saved on my desktop. I know this is an elementary question but how do you run this .BAT file? Whatever I do it doesn't seems that Stata is recognizing my command.

Thank you for your help.
