I've noticed the following two issues since upgrading from the 32-bit to 64-bit version of Stata/SE 10.1:

1. Very often when I launch Stata, I get the dialog box telling me it has been at least 7 days since I last checked for updates. This despite: (1) checking for updates more recently than 7 days, and (2) deselecting the preference to "Enable automatic update checking". It appears that that preference setting does not "stick" for me in the 64- bit version.

2. I switch somewhat regularly between using the monitor on my MacBook Pro and a larger external monitor. I have set up two different sets of preferences for the locations of all the various Stata windows for the two monitors and I use "Manage Preferences" to switch between them. The preferences work to systematically move the window locations and sizes of all windows (e.g, Command, Variables, Review, etc.) to the desired locations/sizes EXCEPT for the Results window -- which always remains at its last setting. All windows (including Results) switched from one saved location to another as expected under 32-bit Stata. Creating new sets of preferences from scratch has not fixed this issue.

Please note that I am running OS X 10.5.7 and what appears to be the most recent version of Stata:

. update query
(contacting http://www.stata.com)

Stata executable
    folder:               /Applications/Stata/
    name of file:         Stata64SE
    currently installed:  16 Apr 2009
    latest available:     16 Apr 2009

Ado-file updates
    folder:               /Applications/Stata/ado/updates/
    names of files:       (various)
    currently installed:  16 Apr 2009
    latest available:     16 Apr 2009

Recommendation
    Do nothing; all files up to date.


Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike
