Thank you, Martin, for the link. It helped me solving the problem. If
anyone has a similar issue, here is what I did:

I checked the registry and found that the Stata file associations were
indeed incorrect (presumably because I had previously installed and
unistalled Stata multiple times to fix another issue). So, I
uninstalled Stata again. Then, I used CCleaner
(http://www.ccleaner.com/) to clean up the registry (the default
uninstaller does not remove the registry entries when uninstalling
Stata!). After rebooting, I updated Stata. AFTER the update,
double-clicking worked again.

Best

R.
