Many thanks for that Richard.  I have created a shared network folder to
store any new .ado files.  I have also created a profile.do file with an
'adopath' to that folder. Users with Stata on their PC then copy the
profile.do file to the Stata installation folder on their hard drive.
It seems to work so far.

Regards,

Dave

You can go here to download the files:

You'll have to place them where Stata can find them.

However, are you absolutely positively sure you can't get an 
Internet-connected machine with Stata on it?  Personally, I just 
periodically copy c:\ado from one machine onto another so that all of 
my ado files are in sync with each other.  Manually installing files 
is cumbersome and is prone to error.
