my students are using stata 10.0; we are launching stata through the

trouble using the histogram command through the graphics pull down

installed.

They continue to get an awkward result....the instruction I founf for
this sort of issue were "update swap" but when I have them try this,
the result is that the program fails to engage because it is being
used by another user. I shut down the system and started over to no
avail.

it's very frustrating to me and the students and i really wish I could
help them. any suggestions?

Like Nick says, you are probably at the mercy of some IT person to get Stata updated. They may not even know that Stata has an update feature, and if not you'll have to educate them (I did). And, even if they do know, they may only want to update their images once a semester. But go ahead and plead, yell and shout, and you might get somewhere.

For other related sorts of problems, such as letting people install and use programs from SSC, you might be able to adapt the following instructions:
