This FAQ is for users of Stata 10.
Why do I receive the error "Unable to Locate DLL" upon launching Stata 10 on Windows 2000?
||gdiplus.dll not found on Windows 2000
Alan Riley, StataCorp
Some users may encounter the pop-up below when launching Stata 10 on
Stata 10 requires the file gdiplus.dll to run. This file is not found
on some Windows 2000 systems, and the Stata Installer may have failed to
install it in the Stata installation directory.
To solve the problem, you should download the file
gdiplus.dll and save it in your Stata
installation directory (by default, C:\Program Files\Stata10).
