For me this sounds as if you haven't said:

. update swap

after downloading the files. If you update the executable you need to rename 
the old wstata.exe file into wstata.old and the downloaded wstata.bin into 
wstata.exe. -update swap- does this for you. If you don't do it, Stata still 
uses the old executable, which probably is not new enough for some of the 
updated ado-files.

Many regards
