Dear Vassilis,

I do not maintain gdecomp because there are arguments against variable-level decomopsitions. 
I am aware of the error message and recenlty I made a change which hopefully solves your problem. 

To reinstall gdedomp, please use the commands

net from "http://web.uni-corvinus.hu/bartus/stata";
net install gdecomp, replace

Hope this helps,

Tamás
