AMPL Book Software
License Update for 2002

All current copies of the
AMPL Plus 1.6 Student Edition
will expire at the end of 2001

Download and reinstall
an updated version for use in 2002




Caution: This page will soon be obsolete. Due to the expiration of an embedded CPLEX license, copies of AMPL Plus for Windows that were distributed with the AMPL book or downloaded from this web site will expire on January 1, 2003. Current users should plan on downloading a standard (command-line) student edition for Windows, following the instructions on the AMPL download page.

New graphical user interfaces for AMPL are under development. You can currently download copies of several experimental GUIs, but release dates for finished products are still to be set.


The Student Edition of AMPL Plus 1.6 that is packaged with the AMPL book will not work after December 2001. To continue using this software, you must download and install an updated version that will continue to work through 2002.

To carry out this update, first download the following two files:

Then run setup.exe and follow the directions that appear. All of the files needed to keep running the AMPL Plus 1.6 Student Edition will be unpacked and written to a folder you can specify, ready for use. It is OK for this folder to be the same one you have been using for AMPL Plus, but in this case any files you have changed since first installing AMPL Plus will be overwritten. More installation details appear in readme.txt

The availability of AMPL Plus and other AMPL student versions after 2002 is currently under negotiation. Developments will be reported on the AMPL home page.

The main advantage of AMPL Plus is its Windows-style graphical user interface. If you do not require this feature, you can download a command-line version of the AMPL Student Edition that has no expiration date.
