Hi All!

When I call Stata 8.0 from the Start Menu, I am presented with this

Single-user Stata for Windows perpetual license:
       Serial number:  ***********
         Licensed to:  Elmer V Villanueva
                       Personal Installation

      1.  (/m# option or -set memory-) 10.00 MB allocated to data
      2.  (/v# option or -set maxvar-) 10000 maximum variables

The memory and maxvar options were set permanently previously.

When I call Stata by double clicking on Stata file, this is what I get:

      1.  (/m# option or -set memory-) 1.00 MB allocated to data
      2.  (/v# option or -set maxvar-) 32766 maximum variables

.. use "C:\data 01.dta" 

Consider how the -set memory- value has changed. When I double click on
a large file (say 200,000 observations), Stata spits out an error
message that memory's too low. All's fine if I were to call up Stata
from the Start Menu and open the file using command line syntax.

Stata seems to remember -set memory- settings differently depending on
the way you call up the program. Does anyone know why this would happen?
More importantly, how do I get around this.
