st: Windows: read-only directory error
Using Windows XP and Stata 9.1 I received the following error:
file c:\statdata\cancer\mkcancerfile.log cannot be modified or erased; in
I presume this is a Stata interpretation of a Windows message.
What caused the error was not the I was in a read-only directory, but that
I was running two versions of Stata and the log was open in the first Stata
at the same time I was trying to open it in the second Stata.
I want to suggest that the error message be altered slightly to indicate
that this other cause, as the directory was not read-only.
Perhaps it could say " ... file ... cannot be modified or erased; in
read-only directory or read-only file (file may be open)
