Hi Statalist,

A while back I did some analysis with xtabond. I noticed a problem 
with the command and reported that on this list, after which a stata 
programmer confirmed the problem. Since then I have updated my Stata 
and my guess is that the updates reflect the fixed version of xtabond. 

Here is my question. I want to find out whether the difficulty I am 
having in replicating certain estimation results (using xtabond) I had 
found in the past is due to the fact that the old estimation was run 
on the faulty xtabond, or whether it'd due to something else such as 
change in the datase, etc.. To check for the first possibility, I 
tried to "un-update" xtabond on my Stata 7 by removing the ado files 
relating to xtabond from the folder stata/updates/ado/x/ . When I try 
to run the xtabond estimation after this removal, I get an error 
message saying "you are using an outdated version of xtabond. To 
update your ado-files, type -update ado- at the Stata prompt. r
(499); ". How can I bypass such an error message and "force" stata 7 
to go ahead and use the unupdated xtabond?
