He has received several helpful suggestions.  Based on his description
of the problem, I believe that it is almost certain that he is running
32-bit Stata for Windows on his 64-bit version of Windows.

He can verify this by typing -about- in Stata and looking
at the first line of output:

    . about

    Stata/MP 11.1 for Windows (32-bit)
    ...                       ^^^^^^^^

Notice the "32-bit" at the end of the line.  If he is running
64-bit Stata for Windows, the end of the line will show
"64-bit x86-64".  I suspect, however, that it will show "32-bit".

If this is the case, he should uninstall Stata and reinstall it,
making sure to select the 64-bit version.

If he still has problems, he should contact Technical Services
