The -ml check- command was designed to verify that the specified evaluator
function works properly with the given data, model specification, and evaluator
type. -ml check- performs the following sanity checks on the evaluator:
1. the evaluator does not modify the input vector
2. the evaluator will return the same non-missing criterion value upon
repeated calls with the same input vector
3. the evaluator returns consistent 1st derivatives when they are requested,
provided that 1st derivatives are expected with the given evaluator type
4. the evaluator returns consistent 2nd derivatives when they are requested,
provided that 2nd derivatives are expected with the given evaluator type
5. the evaluator doesn't produce unanticipated output
Some of these checks are irrelevant outside of -technique(nr)-; in fact, some
parts of -ml check- tacitly assume that -technique(nr)- is in control. For
this and other reasons, we changed -ml check- to report an error if anything
other than -technique(nr)- is being used. This change was made in the
18dec2012 update to Stata 12.

Objet : ml check with dfp technique
I wonder why with Stata 12 it is no more possible to use" ml check" after "ml model" whereas it was possible with Stata 11 ?
When I try to use it in Stata 12, I have the message :
"technique(dfp) is not allowed with ml check
Someone knows what has changed?
