The eplex_cplex library is designed to interface to CPLEX with a license. 
You seem to be using the trial version of OPL Studio. I don't know if
this use a normal CPLEX license, but I suspect it does not. I took a quick
look at the (trial) OPL Studio that I have, and I can't find a separate
CPLEX or a license file for it.

To use eplex with CPLEX with a normal license file, you need to have the
environment variable ILOG_LICENSE_FILE setup to point to where you license
file is.

Unless there is one with the OPL Studio you have, yes, you need the license
file access.ilm. ILOG does offer CPLEX at discounted prices for academic
users. See:

We are not currently building a version of CPLEX 9.0 for Windows. We will
probably do so sometime in the future.

I assume you mean eplex_xpress. Again, you need a license from Dash. Dash
does offer free academic licenses to Universities through their Academic
Partner Program. See
