Referring to "another computer" or what you "read somewhere" is not informative. You need a report of the following kind 1. Data we can see or use or download to check what you did. 2. Precisely which Stata was used. 3. Precise results that differ. Note that upgrades of Stata sometimes withdraw functionality previously implemented if theoretical arguments and/or extensive simulation testing lead StataCorp to believe that some detail in the previous code was a bad idea.

But however, when I run the exactly same model (BIPROBIT), using the exactly same data on another computer, it does give me likelihood ratio test.

I thought I should trust the likelihood ratio test.
