hi all,

I have just started to manage the Stata updates for our research center. 
Regarding the updates of the Stata executable I have a question: Do all users 
need to exit Stata before swaping the executable?

Before I -update, swap- I always write to the Stata users to save their data 
and exit Stata. After updating I write again that they can continue working. 
However it  is my understanding that the Stata executable is loadad into the 
computer only once and that the users therefore do not at all recognize the 
change of the executable while their Stata session. My email warnings would 
be be unnecessary than.

Best regards,
