Unfortunately I haven't succeeded with the over-identifying test command.
I have changed the commands as people form the statalist have indicated me
without any results.

I get the following message;

. ssc install overid
checking overid consistency and verifying not already installed...
all files already exist and are up to date.

. overid
this is version 9.0 of Stata; it cannot run version 9.2 programs
     A free update to version 9.2 is available; type update and follow the
instructions, or visit
     If you are not connected to the Internet, you can contact StataCorp to
obtain the latest version.

By the way, I have Intercooled Stata 9.0 for Windows. I haven't done any updates
as the error message advise me to do. Is this necessary, I don't want to have
problems when doing update on my Stata.
