comment Xindy not working with MiKTeX
I did mix the two 'share' directories, still it didn't work. Checked the content of the texmf to try to understand what's happening, but found nothing, except just a comment on xindy/texindy (end others): "% we''d like to allow: .....................................% texindy,xindy - but is the module feature insecure? That'all. I think I'll stick to calling directly the perl scripts from a macro in WinEdt.

comment Xindy not working with MiKTeX
No, it didn't. There is an ambiguity in your indications, and may be that's the reason: does the 'share' subdirectory of web2c have to be mixed with the 'share' subdirectory of xindy-w32 ? Each one has a texmf-dist subsubdirectory. For the moment the directories structure I have is as follows : W32tex\web2c\share\texmfdist (and others) \xindy\share\texmfdist (and no other) Do you have something of the kind?

comment Xindy not working with MiKTeX
Sorry for the preceding trials: 5 minutes are quite short. I tried solution 2, as I had tried solution 1 by myself previously, and it made a real mess with MiKTeX . Unfortunately, if perl --help works perfectly, xindy --help delivers the same message: Failed to find script. I even experimented, changing separators for paths to /, &c., but it didn't help. I'm not even sure whether the message refers to a script wrapper – which doesn't exist – or to the perl scripts themselves — which work perfectly well if I launch them from the command line. So I really don't what to change.

comment Xindy not working with MiKTeX
Could it be that non-working of the .exe files come from the fact that I have a perl 64 bits installation, not a 32 bits ?

comment Xindy not working with MiKTeX
Well I considered installing xindy in a LocalTeXMF directory, just as I install there packages not in the MiKTeX distribution or personal packages or MiKTeX-biber-bin, since there is no MiKTeX-biber-bin-x64. My point is only to make all this stuff work correctly together with MiKTeX. Xindy itself uses a texmf.cnf which I do not really understand. So I scrupulously followed the instructions given in "How to use xindy with miktex". Do you think it is such a wrong point of view?

comment How to use Xindy with MiKTeX?
@Speravir: in a MiKTeX installation, shouldn't the bin\ directory be in \LocalTeXMF\miktex\bin\ rather than in \LocalTeXMF\bin\? If so, where should really be texmf.cnf ? For the moment it is in LocalTeXMF\. And what is this mysterious wrapper, makeindex4 ? Thanks for your help.

I loaded the installer , but it didn't work neither with the perl script, nor with exe files (probably a problem in a perl script with an environment variable – one of the exe supposed thatxindy-lisp.exe was in LocalTeXMF, not in an independent xindy directory.

Yes – at least other messages. However in both cases, if I force compilation the resulting pdf is normal.

comment “! Argument of \xpg@nospace has an extra }” error message with polyglossia
Thank you for your answer ! It works perfectly. The problem with babel is that I use MiKTeX 2.9, and it has only babel 3.8 up to now. What I do not understand, though, is why the same problem happens with LuaLaTeX.
