Stata installations on Vista

Please note you may have a problem getting Stata to register its licence file if you are installing it on a machine running Microsoft Windows Vista. If you do please do the following.

The default Vista permission settings do not allow applications write permissions to their respective install directories even if you are logged into a machine as administrator. Stata needs these permissions to create its license file. To get around the problem you must right click on the Stata executable in the Stata install directory, normally C:\Program Files\Stata\wsestata.exe, and select "Run as Administrator" from the right click menu to open Stata. Then you can enter your authorisation information, etc.and Stata should create the proper file.
