You posted this before and got no replies, which usually means that people don't recognise the problem or have enough information to answer helpfully. My own guess is that if something really had happened in Stata 11 it would have been spotted by now as many people do something like this. But I recommend discussing your problem with Stata technical support. I guess one key is exactly how you install user-written software as it's my understanding that only installations that use -net- directly or indirectly will be recognised by (e.g.) -ado-. I doubt that copying files otherwise would show up. Also, if you installed packages while using Stata 11 I doubt that upgrading to Stata 12 will entail inheriting that information from your Stata 11 files. These are (slightly informed) guesses and especially open to correction.
