" I had previously installed and unistalled Stata multiple times to fix

Just out of curiosity, having never uninstalled Stata for any reason, which
"issue" required you to uninstall "mulitple times"?

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.
