I typed in Stata

. findit dolca

and got nothing. So, on this evidence you are using a user-written
program that is not universally accessible.

 I don't know how a typical Statalist member is expected to diagnose
what is going on beyond the messages you got.

I suggest contacting the author(s) of the program for support or
giving us (much) more information.
