Enclosing the address in quotes Works for me in Stata 10, i.e.

winexec "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 8.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe"  "C:\Program Files\Stata11\utilities\stoc.pdf"

Hope this helps,

Hi,

I've checked with Stata Technical Support and haven't found an answer to my question.

I use Foxit as my default PDF reader but Foxit won't make the links to the sources in the manual.  Only Adobe Acrobat does.  I don't want to make Acrobat my default reader.

So I tried this:

winexec C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 8.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe  C:\Program Files\Stata11\utilities\stoc.pdf

This opens Acrobat but gives me the message that the file cannot be found.  Tech support referred me to a page that put the PDF file in <brackets> such as this, but that didn't help either.  Is there any way to get the help document open from within Stata?

Thanks,

Ric
