I've updated to the latest version (v 4.12) of the glossaries package on a miktex installation under windows. Now I get two warnings from the glossaries package:

Package glossaries Warning: No language module detected for 'ngerman'. (glossaries) Language modules need to be installed separately. (glossaries) Please check on CTAN for a bundle called (glossaries) `glossaries-german' or similar.

Package glossaries Warning: No language module detected for 'english'. (glossaries) Language modules need to be installed separately. (glossaries) Please check on CTAN for a bundle called (glossaries) `glossaries-english' or similar.

I didn't find these language packages in the miktex package manager so I tried to install them manually. I've created two folders within the miktex installation dir \Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9\tex\latex called glossaries-english and glossaries-german and put the *.dtx and *.ins files of the appropriate languages into these folders. After that I refreshed the FNDB and updated the formats under the miktex options on the General tab.

However, the warnings are still there. Any further ideas what to do?

First, make sure you have installed the appropriate language packages for glossaries. For English it is glossaries-english. If the warning is still present do as follows:

Change the current directory to TEXMF/tex/latex/glossaries-english/ and run

pdflatex glossaries-english.ins

Then change the current directory to TEXMF/tex/latex/glossaries-german/ and run

pdflatex glossaries-german.ins

If you then run pdflatex on the *.dtx files you will also get the documentation of these packages in .pdf format.

At this point the needed *.ldf and *.dict files have been generated, so if you want, you can also delete all other files in those directories (except for the *.pdf files if you want their documentation).

The last step is to refresh the file name database, otherwise these files won't be seen by LaTeX.
