Dear all,

I have just installed Stata 9 on a computer that uses Windows Vista 
Premium as operating system. 

I am now trying to open a data file (dta) directly from Explorer, but 
after I have authorized the system to run Stata 9, Stata, instead of 
running
use + the dta file
tries to run only the dta file and thus I get an error message. 

I thought to change the command that starts Stata, either when 
associating dta files with Stata program, or by right clicking on the 
Stata program and going to Properties. I did not succeed in any of the 
cases as I didn’t see where I could specify myself which command is 
executed when Stata starts running. Do you know how this problem could 
be overcome?

Kind regards,
Delia Ionascu
