Re: st: new outreg and error code r(3499)

This error might have to do with how Stata finds programs (ado files)
and Mata libraries. The -adopath- is searched at the time a program is
called. The Mata libraries are indexed when Stata is started. You can
reproduce this error by putting the- outreg- installation files in a
directory that is not visible to Stata when the program is launched
(not in the -adopath-). If the current directory is changed to the one
that contains -outreg-, the program will launch (because the current
directory is included in -adopath-) but the l_cfrmt.mlib will not be
found unless -mata mata mlib index- is used to rebuild the index.
