Probably the simplest would be to uninstall the older versions. 
If I'm not mistaken, the way to do it is  -ado uninstall pkgid [, from(dirname)]-

You are working in the wrong directory for -ivreg2- to see the latest version of -ranktest-.

Or equivalently, the latest version of -ranktest- was installed in the wrong place.

-which- and -adopath- show that from where you are working -ivreg2- will find first the older -ranktest-, so that it unsurprisingly complains.

There are various ways round this. One is to change your -adopath-; another is to navigate to a different directory to do your work.
Another is to uninstall the older versions on the network.

In general, you need to study the idea of -adopath- which underlies all this, and the whole thread shows that insufficient information defines a difficult question.
