This is a repeat of a question from Monday; there were no answers to that.

I guess that you have essentially zero chance of resolving this
through Statalist. Your problem appears to hinge on

1. the code you are using, which you do not show us. (The reasons may
be good, but we can't comment on code we can't see.)

2. the set-up on your different computers.

I suggest that you contact Stata tech support. Their chances of
helping you would be greatly increased if you could let them see your
code and as appropriate dataset(s).
