yesterday I tried to install -outreg2- but I couldn't do it.
I thought it was because I'm not an administrator.

My workaround was just copy the necessary files.

I found this tip somewhere on the Statalist...

I want to install the package 'outreg2' in Stata 11 (running on Windows Vista) but unfortunately, I haven't had any success, yet. :(
So I would be glad if anybody who has overcome this problem would share his/her experience with me! :)

I run STATA as administrator (as suggested by other answers) and used the command 'ssc install outreg2, all replace' but Stata just crashed...
Of course it also crashed when I tried the same command without running STATA as administrator...

I also tried to download all files of the outreg2 package manually into the 'C:\Program Files\Stata11\ado\base\o' folder but this did not work either. The files do not appear in the folder. (Though when I want to download them again, they are visible in the folder...) When trying to run the outreg2 command in Stata, I get the error message that the command outreg2 is unknown.

I guess that the problem has to do with some security settings of Windows Vista, not letting me install these files, but I have no clue where to start finding the key (solution) to my problem...

Thanks in advance for your help!
