Thanks to Martyn and Zurab for their feedback so far. For what it's worth, I have found that a quick and dirty fix is to revise the Windows batch file DOIT.BAT by replacing the 3 lines reading latex %MAIN% with lines reading latex %MAIN% --interaction=nonstopmode and removing (or commenting out) the 3 lines reading if errorlevel 1 goto latexerror This change (which disables the error responses of DOIT.BAT) at least causes DOIT.BAT to input main.tex and to output main.ps, as it did in previous versions. And, when I input main.ps to Adobe Distiller, it outputs what looks like a sensible main.pdf. Therefore, if all else fails, a solution for me personally might be to have my own local version od DOIT.BAT.

And, if so, have they had any problems? I ask because I seem to be having problems. Under my Stata 10 (which is up to date according to -update query-), the online help for -sjlatex- states that -sjlatex- has been tested under MiKTeX 2.3. My MiKTeX is MiKTeX Revision 2.4.1779, and the latest update on http://www.miktex.org/ is MiKTeX 2.7. I attempted to install the new -sjlatex- by typing sjlatex install using C:\sjtemp which worked, creating a new foldet c:\sjtemp under my Windows XP system. However, when I ran the -doit,bat- file to input main.tex and output main.ps, LaTeX aborted with the message (in main.log) %%%% BEGINNING OF TeX LOG - CUT HERE (C:\texmf\tex\latex\xcolor\xcolor.sty Package: xcolor 2005/12/21 v2.09 LaTeX color extensions (UK) (C:\texmf\tex\latex\00miktex\color.cfg File: color.cfg 2005/12/29 v1.1 MiKTeX 'color' configuration ) Package xcolor Info: Package option `override' ignored on input line 211.

Fortunately, I still have my old SJ LaTeX (dated 26.06.2007), which still works, although it is a bit out of date. However, there must presumably be users of MiKTeX 2.4 and above under Windows who also use sjlatex, and would like to have the latest sjlatex. Have any of them had any problems?
