In addition, -help whatsnew- [sic] cannot be expected to record any installations you have made of user-written programs. It does not advise you of anything other than changes in official Stata.

Also, Mahdi should not touch "C:\Program Files\Stata SE 10.1\ado\base" in
any way, shape or form. The consequences will be unpleasant and
unpredictable. BTW, this is probably not the real path as the middle portion
should probably read "Stata10" instead of "Stata SE 10.1". Mahdi may type
-di "`c(sysdir_base)'"- to find out...

I am forwarding this on behalf of Mahdi. I am not completely certain I
understand what he is trying to do, but he may want to paste the ado-files
into his personal directory which would usually be something like
"c:\ado\personal/". If he wants to find the path on his machine, he should

- di "`c(sysdir_personal)'" -

He can check the success by typing -which pvar- and so on. Under no
circumstances should he change the -sysdir-s just to make Stata aware of his
ado files.

i have three ado file with name of pvar.ado sgmm.ado helm.ado, these file
