The problem is indeed related to a MiKTeX installation in a path containing spaces. It can be solved by a small edit in C:\Program Files\MiKTeX2.9\scripts\xindy\xindy.pl replace in line 779 @styles = glob("\$lang_dir/\$variant\$cp*-lang.xdy"); by @styles = glob("'\$lang_dir/\$variant\$cp*-lang.xdy'");

The bidi package loaded by polyglossia together with the Urdu language definition file doesn't know about elsarticle, so it redefines \maketitle as if it were the one in article, which is fully incompatible with what elsarticle expects. Here's a workaround. \documentclass[3p]{elsarticle} % save \maketitle as defined by elsarticle ...

It was not necessary to change texindy.pl. Please add a line \$filter=quotify(\$filter); at the next line of line 719 of xindy.pl. After the change, sub filter_index becomes as follows: sub filter_index ( \$\$ ) { my (\$filter, \$input) = @_; my \$output = tmpnam(); push (@temp_files, \$output); \$output=quotify(\$output); ...

@Shamim Hafiz might be right, because what solve my problem was to install the MiKTeX 2.9 in the compatibility mode pointing out that MiKTeX used to work well in Win7. I completed the installation and then, I also executed the Texwork editor (the default editor installed with MiKTeX) in the compatibility mode. After checking that my file was compiling ok ...

The error is due to the on-the-fly installation of missing packages. When the "ask me first" is used miktex tries to show a dialog and fails. This explains the erratic number of documents showing the problem. I made a bug report. In the meantime one can avoid the crash by setting the option to "yes" or "no", and by installing missing package before the ...

As in the comments the question was changed to "how to get the new xindy working in miktex" here some background: xindy.exe in the miktex bin-folder is a small wrapper which calls perl xindy.pl.

The xstring and standalone processing is making this vastly more complicated and fragile than it needs to be, I'd just use \input. In the following I changed highlight.sty to make bgcolor grey rather than white so it shows up, if you want it white put it back or simply remove the \colorbox{bgcolor} main.tex \documentclass[a4paper,twoside]{article} ...

The default behaviour is to only add to the list of acronyms those that are actually used in the text. If you want to add all defined acronyms to the list of acronyms, use \glsaddall[types=\acronymtype]. % arara: pdflatex % arara: makeglossaries % arara: pdflatex \documentclass{article} \usepackage[acronym,toc]{glossaries} \makeglossaries ...
