The Stata Installation Qualification Tool (IQT) verifies that Stata has been installed properly and that any subsequent software updates are also installed properly. The Stata IQT currently exists for Windows and Mac operating systems.
This version of the Stata IQT is designed for use with Stata 18 and will not work with earlier versions of Stata. If you have an earlier version of Stata and wish to use the Stata IQT, please visit the appropriate link below:

Start the Stata IQT. (On Windows, navigate to Start Menu > Stata 18 IQT > Stata 18 IQT.)
The Stata IQT produces a report that fully documents the installation status of Stata.
The report contains summary information that includes the date the report was created; the user who created the report; the name and operating system of the computer on which the report was created; information about the Stata installation being checked; and counts of files checked, passed, failed, and missing.
The report also includes a detailed listing of every file checked by the Stata IQT. For each file, 128-bit MD5 checksums are calculated and compared against the official checksum for that file. Files are marked as “Passed”, “Failed”, “Missing”, or “N/A” (not applicable). A file is marked as not applicable if it is an official Stata file but is not required for this installation of Stata and is not found.
Here are two sample reports produced by the Stata IQT:
