There have been many follow up articles on this since. The 
consequence is that there are now many versions of both
-mvis-, -ice-, -micombine-, and -mim- floating around in
cyberspace. If your commands are not in sync, or if you use
syntax appropriate for another version than the one on your
system, then you can easily get this type of error message. 
Safest is to go for the latest version of -ice- (the 
successor of -mvis-) and -mim- (the successor of 
-micombine-). Both have been published in the Stata Journal, 
the articles can be found by typing in Stata: -findit ice- 
and -findit mim-. The latest versions of the software is 
available from SSC, type in Stata -ssc install ice- and 
-ssc install mim-.

Hope this helps,
