-ivreg2- (SJ/SSC) has no dialog written for it. Look again at wherever
you installed it from -- which you are asked to specify -- and you
will not see a dialog file listed.

Mostly, user-written program packages do not include dialogs.

The reasons no doubt vary but could be one or more of the following:

1. Too much like hard work.

2. Programmers tend to think in terms of the command language. Even
when they write programs partly or largely for student use, they may
still wish to encourage use of the command language.

3. Pure snobbery.

4. Mostly, user-written program packages do not include dialogs.

But that is really of no consequence. The -help- file explains how you
can get residuals afterwards and then plot them as desired. I can't
comment on the nuance "first stage".
