I don't use these tools, but have you looked here:

I'm not sure about system calls from within
MathProg (but someone will).  But you could
perhaps do it the other way around, call GLPSOL
from a script.  Any scripting language would do
(bash, perl, python, ruby) or whatever is native
on Windows box.

In which case, have you looked here:

The other option is to program more directly, also
using a scripting language.  For example, python:

Why not upgrade to 64-bit Excel?  (Your email address
suggests Georgia Tech?)

You can use GLPSOL to generate the problem in CPLEX LP
format and then feed that to another solver:

The call is:

    $ glpsol --check --wlp model.lp --math model.mod

GLPK can also tackle the same file:

   $ glpsol --lp model.lp

If you encounter problems, you could also try bridging
with the MPS free format.  Described in the above links.

You might also find something useful here, particularly
if you are coding in C, Java, or similar:
