It would indeed be nice for -adoupdate- to be able to output a do-file that does the required updates. I personally have long produced a sequence of do-files that you can download from my website, which install the latest versions of all my packages for each version of Stata from Version 9 to Version 13. These files are automatically updated by my website maintenance programs every time I update my website. They can be found from within Stata by typing

findit instasisay

I usually encourage my colleagues to use these programs to install and update all my Stata packages. Most of my colleagues are still using Stata Version 12, so they use

Best wishes

This is something I've wondered in the past. I found that simply copying them across computers to the right directory will make the commands available to the new installation. However, when you run -adoupdate- Stata does not seem to have a list of the installed ado files. So I wonder if there is a file with the list that is updated every time you install an ado that -adoupdate- reads and we ought to copy as well.

Hi everyone,

A very simple question: is there any way to transfer the ados I have
installed on one computer to another one? Or do I have to install them
one by one in the new computer?
Thanks in advance,
