You are right, we have a 64-bit Windows server. I am very far very being an expert programmer myself so I guess -strgroup- won't work for us.
thanks

Charles,

This is the OS issue I alluded to in my e-mail. The C plugin that makes is probably not available for what I am guessing is a 64-bit Windows machine. The error message is pretty cryptic.

The author has offered to make the source code available in the past so that you can try to compile it yourself. I was not able to do it, but I am no expert programmer. Googgle "stata and strgroup" to find details.
