Thanks to Kit Baum, a new package -runmplus- has just been posted to SSC. 

This package has been prepared for STATA users operating in the Windows environment. 


TITLE
      'RUNMPLUS': module to set up data for Mplus

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)
      
      runmplus brings the powerful latent variable analysis
      capabilities of Mplus (see www.statmodel.com) into the Stata
      enviroment. While runmplus does little more than data reformat
      and ascii file creation, it removes a lot of the hassle of
      estimating categorical and continuous latent variable models
      using Mplus. runmplus will not check Mplus code for errors.
      runmplus can't be used efficiently without an understanding of
      the Mplus command syntax. runmplus is a modification and
      extension of Michael Mitchell's stata2mplus module (see
      http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/Stata/). The runmplus module does a
      number of tasks:  (1) creates an ascii data file suitable for use
      with Mplus using code from stata2mplus, and also (2) creates a
      mplus command file using options specified, (3) executes the
      mplus command file using the dos shell command feature, and (4)
      dumps the Mplus model results to the screen/log (unless directed
      not to by the user using log(off)).  Other modules are included
      to save model fit and selected parameter estimates over multiple
      runs (runmplus_fits) and to load data saved by Mplus into Stata
      (runmplus_load_savedata). Mplus software (demo or licensed) is
      required to use this STATA module www.statmodel.com).
