AMPL Installation Wizard

Here are instructions to install AMPL-Gurobi on Mac OS X:

  1. Run the supplied installer for Gurobi Solver, which will be named something like amplgurobi9.0.0.pkg. This will install AMPL-Gurobi for all users of your Mac.
  2. You will need a license key for AMPL - even if you already have a license key for the standalone Gurobi Optimizer. To get system information needed for a license key, open the Terminal (found in /Applications/Utilities), then type the command:
    fingerprint -o fp.out
    
    This will generate a fingerprint file named fp.out in your home folder. To request your license key (after we have received your payment or a Gurobi sales representative has approved your request to evaluate AMPL), email the fp.out file to key@gurobi.com.
  3. When you receive your license key, simply copy the license key file to the folder /usr/local/bin; you can open this folder in the Finder by selecting Go to Folder from the Go menu.
  4. If you are configuring a floating license server for AMPL-Gurobi, please follow the additional instructions for ampl_lic.
