I recently switched from a Macbook to PC, and installed Stata SE 17.0 (same license). Based on the asdocx FAQs, I just input the command to install asdocx on my PC without apparent issue. However, when I try to run the following regression command with asdocx, I keep getting an error that I haven’t seen before:
COMMAND (run from do file):
*** TABLE 2
asdocx logit defund1 male age b(#2).degree inc1 i.marital4 parent b3.relid6 i.bible1 attend if missflag==0, ///
reset nest label eform setstars(***@.001, **@.01, *@.05) noci dec(3) table_layout(autofit) cnames(SES) title(“Table 2”) save(defund_logit_072222.docx) replace
_fopen(): 3602 invalid filename
fileexists(): – function returned error
license_handler(): – function returned error
get_file_and_folder(): – function returned error
<istmt>: – function returned error
This happens whether I specify a filename in the command or not. Any help understanding this error would be greatly appreciated!
asdocx license is machine-specific. The license works only on a PC/Mac for which the license was generated. The license is based on the information generated by the aslic program. Since, you have shifted to a new PC, you need a new license. As per FAQs, license works fine if you re-install your operating system or move to a new version of Stata. As a goodwill gesture, I shall create a new license for your new PC. Please install aslic and run it.
net install aslic, from(http://fintechprofessor.com)
It will generate few lines on the Stata screen, email those lines to me.
