-estout- uses features that have been introduced with 
Stata version 8.2. In fact it even uses features that have 
been introduced with updates to version 8.2. It is thus 
important to use the newest available Stata 8 version
with -estout-.

Radu Ban has problems manually installing estout on his
laptop. Here is my suggestion. -estout- is a complicated 
package with various files. However, all these files start
with the string "estout" and should be found in "e" 
folder in the user ado directory on Radu's desktop (if
he installed it using using -ssc install- or -net 
install-). So, Radu should make a copy of all these 
estout files and put them into the  "e" folder in the 
user ado directory on his laptop. -estout- should work
then (provided Radu also updated Stata).

The default path for the user ado directory on Windows
machines is, I believe, "C:/ado/plus". Thus the estout
files would be in "C:/ado/plus/e".
