After the installation procedure completes, close all the Stata
sessions, and all instances of installer.
Manually delete or remove to another folder the stata.lic file from
the directory where Stata is installed to.
Next time you start Stata, it will automatically ask you for the
registration info. If it does not, type: stinit.
You should have received all the necessary registration info in a
letter from StataCorp when you purchased
your copy of Stata. Enter this information into the form fields.

Depending on your computer's setup, you may need administrative rights
to perform the procedure above
(for example you may need to start the installation as an
administrator, and run Stata for the first time as an

Reinitialization of Stata requires special instructions (you can see
this in the dialog box that appears on the
initialized version of Stata). The same message tells you that these
instructions were probably already made
available to you. If not, the phone number to call is 1-800-782-8272
or 979-696-4600. I have not seen these
special instructions, but my guess is that they would be somewhat
similar to the procedure described here.

Special care should be taken if you are switching from one flavor of
Stata to another or doing an upgrade, but
your message does not contain relevant hints.
