Future of the GAMS Distribution for the Windows 32bit platform

Post by bussieck » 1 month ago

Hi GAMS Users,

Many solver vendors (Cplex, Gurobi, Antigone, Knitro, ...) have dropped support over the years for their software for the Windows 32bit platform and only focus on Windows 64bit.

So far, we have been building a 32bit Windows GAMS distribution (with older solver versions), but it is getting more on more complicated to do this reliably. Thus, we plan to drop the 32bit Windows platform altogether within the next six months. Of course, we will continue the Windows 64bit platform.

We have reached out before to our customers (see https://www.gams.com/latest/docs/RN_250 ... _PLATFORMS) but got no answers from concerned customers.
Now we are contacting you directly and seek feedback on this plan. Please get in contact with us (e.g., support@gams.com or here in the forum) by October 31, 2019, if you rely on the 32bit Windows distribution of GAMS.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Regards

Your GAMS Team
