|Title||Official ado directory|
|Author||Stata Technical Support|
Within the official ado directory, there is one subdirectory: base. The official ado-files that shipped with Stata are stored in base. Any official updates should be installed in updates and are automatically placed there by Stata’s update command.
To see the location of the official base directory, start Stata and type sysdir:
. sysdir ... BASE: C:\Program Files\Stata16\ado\base\ ...
