That depends on what program you use and how this mystery program is
implemented. In that sense your question is extremely uninformative,
and ignoring requests to give more details on the program you use is
not going to help you.

If I were to write such a loop to bootstrap -regress- (I would never
do so, as it has the -vce(bootsrap)- option) I would do it something
like this:

*------------ begin example ------------
sysuse auto, clear

gen w = .

tempname memhold
tempfile results
postfile `memhold' foreign turn using `results'

_dots 0, title(Bootstrap) reps(100)
forvalues i = 1/100 {
	bsample ,weight(w)
	qui regress mpg foreign turn [fw=w]
	post `memhold' (_b[foreign]) (_b[turn])
	_dots `i' 0
postclose `memhold'

use `results', clear
*------------ end example ----------------

However, in all likelihood I have just wasted your and my time, as
this might very well not work with your mystery program.
