Sergiy or Kit:

I have Stata SE v 9, fully updated and Win XP SP2; I fail to install
_usespss_ from the net.  Did not fiddle around with a manual install
though.

This is the story:

/**********************************************/
. ssc install usespss

checking usespss consistency and verifying not already installed...
file http://fmwww.bc.edu/repec/bocode/u/usespss.forwin32 not found
could not copy http://fmwww.bc.edu/repec/bocode/u/usespss.forwin32
(no action taken)

ssc install: apparent error in package file for usespss; please notify
repec@repec.org, providing package name
r(601);

/**********************************************/


thanks,

t
