I have checked it again. I have looked in the properties of  c:\ado\plus,  "read only" option is unchecked on this folder. This is first time, I am facing this problem. I read through several posts and it seems 'permission problem' or may be something random???

I just checked and all worked fine for me. Note that -itsp_ado- (from
SSC module of the same name) includes the lines

loc plus `c(sysdir_plus)'
cd "`plus'"

which means that where you have Stata installed should not in any
sense be a complication, let alone a difficulty.
-itsp_ado- automatically changes to an appropriate location indicated
by your system to install files in an appropriate place.

aggreg.mo is the first file to be installed, yet Kit's program bails
out. That sounds like a problem with write permissions or write access
to your D: drive.

I am getting the same error message: file D:\Stata11\StataAdo\Personal\aggreg.mo not found)". Any idea, Am I missing the file or my operating system has some issue. I am using Windows XP and Stata 11.

What I understand from the error message -itsp_ado is stored at c:\ado\plus. While I have my stata installed from D drive and ado files are stored at D:\Stata11\ado. How can I fix this problem without losing any content.
