The command in the program still runs on my old computer.  How do I
put the v10.1 parmby command in my new computer?

Thanks in advance!

Roger Newson is really good about keeping old versions of his programs available. Note that -parmby- is part of his -parmest- package. Quoting from a post of his from Aug 11, 2009,


Users of Stata versions 10, 9, 8, 7, 6 and 5 can still download the versions of -parmest- for their Stata versions from my website by typing, in Stata,

net from

and selecting the -parmest- package written in the appropriate version of Stata.


Incidentally, I often just copy c:\ado from one machine to another. I think that doesn't work correctly if some programs have Mata libraries, but otherwise it seems ok. You might also have problems if, say, is customized differently on your different machines.
