Can you describe the problem in more detail?  What operating system 
you are using?  What you did that didn't work?  It's hard to tell 
what's gone wrong from what you've described.  For example, if you 
follow step 3

> 3-copy wstata.exe to wstata.old

then of course "wstata.old" exists because you just created it.  Or 
are you unable to copy it in the first place?
