Hi Everyone,

I work with Stata/MP 11.1 on a server, which is not connected to the
internet for security reasons. The procedure I currently use to
"install" user written packages is to install the package (fx -somersd-)
into a dedicated folder in Stata on my local computer and then ask the
tech at the server hosting company to place the files in a folder
included in the adopath.
This works but is cumbersome especially with large pkg as -somersd-, and
furthermore it denies me the option of fx -ado describe- to check the
version as the packages are not installed as such in Stata.

What is the correct way to install in this setting? Can you download the
entire package and install (not just copy) the required files ?

Best regards,
