General information

The GAMS Base Module includes the GAMS Language Compiler, GAMS-APIs, and many utilities . All solvers are included in the system and can be used with size limitations. To remove those limitations, you can purchase licenses for individual solver components from us.

The GAMS/EngineOne component allows the usage of GAMS in connection with GAMS/EngineOne. The MIRO Connector allows the usage of GAMS in connection with GAMS/Miro and is included in GAMS/EngineOne.

The GAMS End User License Agreement governing the use of the software is available on our website.

A GAMS/Solver connects the GAMS Base Module to a particular solver and includes a license for this solver to be used through GAMS. It is not necessary to install additional software.

A GAMS/Solver-Link connects the GAMS Base Module to a particular solver but does not include a license for the solver. It may be necessary to purchase a separate license from the solver vendor before the solver can be used. Using GAMS/Solver-Links, including the Open Solver Interfaces to commercial solvers, requires confirmation that the user has a valid license agreement for using the current version of the solver library and that the use of the solver will comply with the terms of that license agreement.

Detailed information about the solvers, their availability on the supported platforms, and the model types they are capable of solving are available at this link . Please contact us for a free evaluation license, if you would like to try different solvers.

Machine-Based Licenses

Machine-Based Licenses are restricted to a particular machine. The license file will show the name and the email address of the license administrator. We provide multi-copy discounts for additional CPU sockets on the same platform: A 30% discount on the original price for the second copy, and a 50% discount for the third and following copies of the same modules. These discounts apply as long as the other license(s) are under maintenance (see below).

Package discounts

NLP Package: CONOPT, IPOPTH, KNITRO, MINOS, SNOPT are discounted 25% if two or more are purchased.

GLOBAL Package: ANTIGONE, BARON, GLOMIQO, LGO, LINDOGLOBAL, and MSNLP are discounted 25% if two or more are purchased.

License duration

Our standard license fee covers a perpetual license to use the software. Maintenance and support (M&S) is free during the first year after the purchase of the software. After the first year, the optional annual fee for M&S is 20% of the list price for all licensed modules. M&S allows free updates, adding components, platform switching without additional charge, and multi-copy discounts on the same platform. Up to four changes per year of the name on a user-based license are included. If the user does not purchase M&S for some period and chooses to purchase it at a later date, we will charge the prevailing annual maintenance and support fees for the periods that were not covered.
