Aaron needs to go to Stata Technical Support, but I can provide some clues,
and some advice on what Technical Support is going to need. The real
key was the part of the output that reads
>  at :
It should have read something like
 kdens2 at http://fmwww.bc.edu/repect/bocode/k:
and based on that, what I now know is that the first thing Aaron has installed
"", which he obtained from "". -adoupdate-, using this information, assembled
the full filename "", which it tried to open, and _fopen() finally complained
about in invalid filename.
The question is, how did Aaron install "" from ""?
Technical support is going to want the see the output from -ado dir-.
Probably, the solution will be to -ado uninstall -, but before Aaron
does that, somebody here really should see the -ado dir- output to
make sure (1) -ado uninstall - will not uninstall anything Aaron might
want, and (2), -ado uninstall - will not make the problem worse.
