 +====== ./gamsinst: cannot execute binary file ======
 +
 +You get this error message when you try to install the 64 bit version of GAMS on a 32 bit LINUX version.
 +
 +If you enter ''​file /​home/​gams/​gamsinst'',​ the output will tell you that this is the 64 bit version of GAMS:
 +<​code>​
 +gamsinst: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.4.0, statically linked, not stripped
 +</​code>​
 +while the 32 bit version returns:
 +<​code>​
 +gamsinst: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.2.5, ​
 +dynamically linked (uses shared libs), not stripped
 +</​code>​
 +
 +Solution: Install the 32-bit version of GAMS (or upgrade your operating system to a 64 bit version). The command ''​uname -a''​ will tell you more information about your version of UNIX. Hint: On most systems the command ''​top''​ will provide more information about the number of CPU's, the available memory, and the system load.
