when I right click on the
http://fmwww.bc.edu/repec/bocode/u/usespss.forwin32
in your message and attempt to save the file, it allows me to do it,
which makes me think that:
1. the file is actually there
2. there is something about your system that does not allow it to be installed.

Are the other files installed OK?


Another correspondent wrote to me privately indicating a problem with installing this routine (relating to the name of the binary component), which I rectified earlier today. There is no problem with installing this routine now (I say optimistically, as I cannot install it).

Please do NOT use the URLs for IDEAS (ideas.repec.org) or EconPapers (econpapers.repec.org) to download the components of this or any other routine on the SSC Archive! The -ssc- command exists to make that process error-free. Particularly Windows users (and no one else will want this routine) have problems downloading .hlp files, let alone binary executables (whether they are named .dll, .plu, .spg or whatever). Stata itself can download these materials and locate them in the correct directories using -ssc-, and that is the right way to acquire them.
