Great. Thanks a lot to all that have tried to help me! In the end I combined different suggestions to make my Stata work properly. In the case someone faces the same problem, here you have what I did: 1. Using Explorer I went to the folder where I installed Stata and I have created there a shortcut to wsestata.exe 2. Right-click on the shortcut; then choose Properties; then in Target write C:\Stata9\wsestata.exe use "%1" 3.Next, I went to Control Panel; then to Default Programms; next to Associate a file type or protocol with a program; than I selected dta files (you can also add them if they are not already there); then Change program ...; and then, instead of leaving Stata as it was I went to Browse ... and then I selected the shortcut I have created instead of the program itself. Maybe there is an easier way to this, but this works for sure.
