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. A lot of the applications in the miktex folder are only wrappers (which explains why they are so small). The wrappers are normally created with initexmf ...

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); ...

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 ...

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} ...

Since June 2015, xindy is available for installation in miktex package manager. See version 5653 of the package repository. Don't forget to update database.

It helped me: Run mo.exe From "packages" tab select miktex 2.9 executables -> mpm cli, miktex-vc120-bin, miktex-internal-bin Update again. (miktex portable with /bin added to path)

@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 ...

It was updated (or created) on June 10. It is in the miktex-vc120 package. Perhaps you should synchronise repositort, via the Package manager, then install it:

According to another site, the missing dll is part of the MS Visual C++ 2013 redistributable. Free from Microsoft: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40784 Try it and let us know.

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 ...

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'");

I found the problem: The tex-files were stored on a DropBox-folder under encryption by BoxCryptor, and that thing seems to hold open or otherwise block some file resources; on DropBox without BoxCryptor, as well as on the local filesystem, everything is fine. So this issue is solved.

You get something like This is BibTeX, Version 0.99d (TeX Live 2015) The top-level auxiliary file: tubby.aux The style file: biblatex.bst Database file #1: tubby-blx.bib Database file #2: tubby.bib I was expecting a ,' or a }'---line 3 of file tubby.bib : : title = {RFC 3550, RTP: A Transport Protocol for Real-Time Applications} (Error may have ...

After an extensive google research I found out that the problem occurs because I am using Sync Center to synchronize my offline files. Currently I temporarily copy my texfiles to a local drive, which solves the problem.

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 ...

\obeylines defines the end of line to be the definition of \par at the point that the \endlines command is used. so here it is \endgraf essentially. You can not have that primitive before \hline as it has to be the first thing on the row. Using \obeylines for a whole document only really makes sense if you are typesetting some original plain text document. ...

CTAN is a TeX & friends-related code repository not a LaTeX snob :P. The contents are separated for convenience and maintenance plus a few esoteric details (as far as I know). For example if you look at your MikTeX directory you can see this separation clearly. Because packages are also installed based on this structure. But possibility of using a ...

In short: Plain TeX and LaTeX are different macro packages that define different formats. So, in general, it is not possible to use LaTeX packages on top of Plain TeX. For a short introduction to all this rather specialized jargon you may check this blog post It is possible to use some LaTeX packages on Plain TeX (graphics, color and hyperref, for ...

This is only a partial answer, as it does not provide the full requested information. There are macro bundles ('packages') on CTAN designed for PlainTeX, listed under CTAN archive and explicitly stated as such, e.g. http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/eplain http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/inrstex etc. The directory CTAN plain/contrib ...
