Hi Scott:

I've moved my copy of Stata 10 from OSX 10.4 to OSX 10.5 without using the CD for a clean reinstall--I didn't have any issues.

A few points of advice: copy the entire "~/Applications/Stata/" folder(it's important that you get a copy of your stata.lic file in there if you don't have your Stata license codes with you), rather than just the application, and also grab a copy of the "~/Library/ Application Support/Stata/" folder and put it into your new library when you get 10.5 loaded. Also, type -sysdir- in Stata and grab a copy of any other paths that sysdir lists & aren't in the aforementioned /Applications, /Library, or /Application Support folders.

If you are still in doubt, I suggest using Carbon Copy Cloner to help you with the backup and file transfer process.

I'm away on business needing to install Mac OSX Leopard on my machine,

Stata with me - it's installed on my computer already.  I was
wondering if a Stata Mac user could tell me whether it'll work for me
to copy my Stata to a hd, install Leopard, and then just copy it back.
In other words, not install from a CD.  Many mac programs work this
way, but wanted to talk to someone who knew what they were talking
