At least we can now be sure you do have Stata < 10, and thus my strategy
recommend in an earlier post to use Stata`s own command won`t work. You also
do have the required files on your computer to perform the test, all that is
lacking is the executable for Stata 9.2 which is free and can be obtained
from the advertised source. What are your concerns re update to 9.2?

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
as the error message advise me to do. Is this necessary, I don't want to
problems when doing update on my Stata.
