Download & installation

Note:

To be able to solve models in GAMS MIRO on your local machine, GAMS version 30.2 or later is required. You can download the latest GAMS version here. You will also find installation instructions for the GAMS system there.

GAMS MIRO Desktop itself is open source software. In order for GAMS to interact with MIRO, the MIRO connector is required, which is included in the GAMS system from GAMS version 30.2. Without a valid license, the connector has limitations on the number of indexed symbols that can be communicated with MIRO. A maximum of 10 indexed symbols can be included in $on/offExternalInput and $on/offExternalOutput.

Please check the release notes.

GAMS MIRO installation

  1. In case a current R version (3.6 or later) is not yet installed on your system, you need to do this first. You can download R here.
  2. For MIRO to work, the system libraries V8 and libcurl need to be installed. On Debian / Ubuntu you need libcurl4-gnutls-dev and either libv8-dev or libnode-dev, on Fedora use libcurl-devel and v8-devel. For example, to install both libraries on Ubuntu, run:
    > sudo apt install libcurl4-gnutls-dev libv8-dev
  3. The first time you launch the GAMS MIRO AppImage, some R packages need to be installed in your R installation path. You will be guided through this installation process.

Demo applications

We provide some GAMS MIRO demo applications. You can use these to get to know some of MIRO's basic features. To run the sample applications, you must first extract them. More about this here.

Note:

A well-known model from the GAMS model library is called trnsport. One of the MIRO demo models is based on this model and has been titled transport to avoid two models of the same name.
