Of note, but not the cause of Ugo's installation problem, is that "Stata" is not spelled "STATA".  SAS and other programs are spelled all in upper case because they are acronyms: the letters originally stood for other words, in the case of SAS, the words are "Statistical Analysis System".  As the FAQ explain, "Stata" is a made-up name and so, like other names, properly spelled with only the first letter capitalized, for example:

Hi Ugo,

I've run into a similar problem on a couple of different Macs when trying to update Stata that was installed by a different user. My solution was to go to Applications > Stata, use Command-i to get info. I then changed the sharing & permissions settings such that admin users have read & write access and then applied those changes to all enclosed items within the application folder. It's far more efficient than modifying permissions on each file and folder individually...
