Stata8 does not use the registry for storing information about the updates
or ado files installed.  It only uses the registry for information about
preferences (such as windowing, clipboard copying, etc), "permanent"
settings, translators, printers, and a few other things.  You can just copy
c:\Stata8\ado\updates and c:\ado (or whatever places stuff oges on your
machine) to get the ado files updated.
