The new -outreg- command is user-written and from Stata Journal 12(1).
Please remember that you are asked to explain this.

I just installed -outreg- and and the same code worked fine for me on
Stata 10.1. So, despite the installing and uninstalling, something is
wrong with the way you did it. The difficulty lies in the Mata
functions, which in this case are in a library. My wild guess is that
Stata is seeing an earlier version of those Mata functions and one has
been rewritten.
