In this tutorial I will describe how to configure Apple Xcode to use IBM CPLEX with Concert technology in a C project. This tutorial assumes you already have CPLEX installed. If this is not the case, follow the How to Download and Install a full version of CPLEX (for Mac, obviously). First, start Xcode and select “Create a new Xcode project”. I'm trying to install cplex on Python on my Mac but I'm really stuck. The setup.py file is in the following path. Download Free Student/Trial Version of MPL. Maximal Software is currently making available for download the student/trial versions of both MPL and OptiMax, with CPLEX, GUROBI, CoinMP, SULUM, LINDO, CONOPT, KNITRO, IPOPT, and LGO solvers free of charge.
AMPL has been used by thousands of students to learn about optimization and to apply optimization in class projects. If your are a student looking to use AMPL, you can consider a range of options:
- Download the free size-limited AMPL Demo Version.
- Run AMPL free in the cloud on the NEOS Server.
- Ask your professor to request the free AMPL for Courses.
- Buy AMPL and solvers at highly discounted prices.
- Request a free 30-day student Trial License.
- Graduating soon? Request AMPL for New Graduates to take AMPL with you.
We describe below the main characteristics and advantages of each of these alternatives, with links to further information. For the 30-day trial, a special student-use form appears at the end of the page.
Whatever option you choose, be sure to consult the AMPL book for a full tutorial introduction to all of AMPL’s features.
Free Demo Version Downloads
You can download a free version of AMPL and all of our popular solvers. This version is limited to 500 variables and constraints for linear problems (300 for nonlinear problems, and fewer for certain solvers), but it offers a way to get started fast. It’s particularly convenient for trying out some of the examples in the AMPL book.
See our Download a Free Demo page for further instructions.
Free Runs on the NEOS Server
You can send AMPL model and data files to be run free using the facilities of the NEOS Server project. NEOS provides a variety of solvers offering AMPL interfaces. Submissions through the NEOS website are particularly attractive to students, as they do not require any software installation (for either AMPL or solvers) on your own computer.

Free AMPL for Courses
The AMPL for Courses program makes full-featured AMPL + solver packages available to all students in a listed course at a university or other academic institution. If you’re taking a course that is registered for this program, you may install the software on any computer that you use for the course, following short and simple instructions. There is no limitation on problem size, but the software will stop working when the course ends.
AMPL for Courses cannot be requested by individual students. The professor, lecturer, or instructor responsible for the course must make the request. Master copies of the AMPL + solver bundles are provided for download by the instructor or by another responsible person whom the instructor designates; then that person arranges to distribute the bundles to the course’s students.
We encourage you to suggest AMPL for Courses to the person who is teaching your course. Details and an online request form are provided on our AMPL for Courses page.
Buy Discounted AMPL and Solvers
Academic licenses for AMPL and many high-quality solvers can be purchased directly from us. Prices for non-commercial use at degree-awarding academic institutions are only 10% of the regular commercial prices. AMPL and solver licensing use can be tied to a particular computer, or can “float” to any computer on a network.
Purchased licenses are the best option for long-term academic research projects and for departmental computing facilities. There is no limitation on problem size, and the license does not expire on the computer where it is installed. After the first year, an additional maintenance & support fee covers access to new software versions and regeneration of license files for repaired or replaced computers. Also free 1-year licenses for several popular solvers are renewed as long as maintenance is current.
See our Buy AMPL Products page for a complete academic price list, ordering instructions, and optional online order form.
Free 30-day Trial Licenses
Students can request a free trial licence for AMPL and the solvers that we sell. This alternative requires a licensing procedure similar to that for purchased licenses. The trial license works on one specified computer, and is good for 30 days beginning with the date of issue.
Trial licenses are intended to provide for evaluation of AMPL and solvers prior to recommending them for purchase or for use through the AMPL for Courses program. They can also be used for very short-term class projects, but only one trial license per year is available to any one student or for use on any one computer.
To request a trial license for student use, first set up an AMPL size-limited demo version package by following the directions on our Download a Free Demo page. Then return here, and follow the directions in the form below to get a license file that will upgrade your demo to a 30-day trial with no problem-size limitations.
Free AMPL for New Graduates
Are you a recent graduate with optimization experience? Then you are entitled to use AMPL and 9 solvers, free and fully-featured, for a year.
You are welcome to use these commercially and for research. We believe you will build great things! See our AMPL for New Graduates page for details.
