Paul,

As is standard with 'net install", ancillary files are installed in the current working directory (cwd). There is no "data directory" defined in any version of Stata which I use. You could, of course, have set c:/data as your default directory in profile.do.

...
(type -ssc install sscsubmit- to install)

. net get sscsubmit
checking sscsubmit consistency and verifying not already installed...

copying into current directory...
copying sscsubmit.html
copying sscstats.html
ancillary files successfully copied.


To my mind Stata makes it quite clear that materials are placed in the cwd. You could of course use 'cd' prior to the net install command to put the ancillary files somewhere else than your cwd.

Kit,

In your help file for this package, you might mention that the html files are installed in Stata's data directory (defaults to C:\DATA for PCs).
