Hi Amadou,
 
If the folder where you're trying to save files (any files, xml_tab output, log, datasets etc) is write protected then of course that can explain error 603, Stata needs to be able to save on that location. are you specifiying the full path in the save() or -using- options? if you just write save(results.xml) that means that you want to save in the current working folder, which most of the cases is Stata folder (c:\program files\stata10\ or something like that) and most probably protected by your system administrator. 
 
Try puting a path, which you are sure you have access to, like your "my documents" folder and see if you get the same problem.
 
Without having more info about your setup I can't think of any other suggestion.
Best,
Zurab
