I would like to download the newest executable in STATA 8, but when I
type the command "update swap" it gives me the following error message:
. update swap

     1.  Removing older backups
         removing wstata_old.exe
     2.  Backing up current executables.
         copying wstata.exe to wstata_old.exe
The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another
process.
Could not copy C:\unzipped\Stata8\Stata8\wstata.exe to
C:\unzipped\Stata8\Stata8\w
  > stata_old.exe
r(695);

What can I do to fix this? Thanks
