I am trying to install ivreg2 and ranktest in stata10, but I have some difficulties after typing ssc install ivreg2 ssc install ranktest I get the following message: file c:\ado\plus\next.trk already exists and I am not able to install them (even using the repalce option)...It seems that ivreg2 is already installed but when I try to use it stata10 does not recognize it...any suggestions? thanks a lot Sara --- Ven 25/7/08, Schaffer, Mark E <M.E.Schaffer@hw.ac.uk> ha scritto: > Da: Schaffer, Mark E <M.E.Schaffer@hw.ac.uk> > Oggetto: RE: st: RE: cragg-donal test for weak instruments with heteroskedasticity > A: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > Data: Venerd́ 25 luglio 2008, 18:31 > Sara, > > > -----Original Message----- > > From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > > [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On > Behalf Of > > sara borelli > > Sent: Friday, July 25, 2008 4:58 PM > > To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > > Subject: R: st: RE: cragg-donal test for weak > instruments > > with heteroskedasticity > > > > Dear Professor Shaffer, > > > > I am sorry to ask you further,and such a long > question, but I > > want to be sure that I understand correctly.
