Windows is being windows....You should rename the file in a DOS (command) window, not in windows explorer.

Thanks, Nick.
I am dealing with the problems one by one.
The first to update Stata from http://www.stata.com/support/updates/stata8/win/
I had been looking at
http://www.stata.com/support/updates/stata8.html and couldn't navigate from that page to the one you gave me.
Anyway, did as instructed, that is saved the bin file in my C:\Stata folder, renamed WSTATA.EXE, WSTATA.OLD and renamed WSTATA.BIN as WSTATA.EXE.
Now the problem is that though I renamed the BIn file as Exe, though the name changed it remained an EXE file. And when I tried to click on it to make Stata run, I was given this dire warning and backed off in fear.
"Files are used by the Operating system or various programmes. Editing or modifying them could damage your system"
Then it gave me a choice to select a programme from the web with which to open the file.
But what I noticed was, when the file is renamed, it is called a wstata.exe.bin. That is renaming does not get rid of the bin.
Can you please advise me what I should do?
Thanks,
Ramani
