Esmer reported doing

I am using Stata 9.2. I wanna use xtabond2 command. I updated Stata using the commands:
' update executable(contacting
Executable update log
1. verifying "O:\program files\stata9\" is writeable
2. downloading new executable
New executable successfully downloaded
1. Type update swap
update swap
no; data in memory would be lost

Read and heed the error message, first of all. You did NOT install the new executable; you just downloaded it. Get the new executable in place, quit Stata, and start Stata again. When you do Mata should be able to locate the library of routines associated with xtabond2. I have had a similar thing happen in the past in terms of needing to rebuild the list of Mata libraries.
