Summary:makeglossaries-lite fails to call makeindex because of spurious quotation marks.

Report

When calling makeglossaries-lite on a file using Option 2 (makeindex), e.g. minimalgls.tex, the compilation fails with the following error message:
makeglossaries.lua version 4.41 (2018-07-23)
Parsing \'minimalgls.aux\'
Found glossary type \'main\' (glg,gls,glo)
Found glossary type \'acronym\' (alg,acr,acn)
\'makeindex" -t "minimalgls.glg" -o "minimalgls.gls" -s "minimalgls.ist" "minimalgls.glo\' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
\'makeindex" -t "minimalgls.alg" -o "minimalgls.acr" -s "minimalgls.ist" "minimalgls.acn\' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
This is due to the spurious quotation marks around makeindex.

MWE

 % This file is public domain.
 %
 % This is a minimal file for testing and debugging
 % the glossaries package. Change the class file as
 % desired, and add the relevant package options to
 % both the class file and the glossaries package.
 % Change the sample glossary entry and acronym if
 % required. If the problem occurs with an additional
 % glossary, add in the relevant \newglossary command
 % and a sample entry.
 %
 % Only add extra packages or commands if they
 % contribute to whatever problem you are trying to
 % test.
 %
 % Remember that the document will not be complete
 % until you have successfully completed all of the
 % following steps:
 % 1. latex minimalgls
 % 2. makeglossaries minimalgls (note no extension)
 % 3. latex minimalgls
 % A further run through LaTeX will be required to ensure that
 % the table of contents is up to date if the toc option
 % is used.
 % Alternatively, if you use arara, you can add the following
 % directives in your document:
 %
 % arara: pdflatex: { synctex: on }
 % arara: makeglossaries
 % arara: pdflatex: { synctex: on }

 % If you require multilingual support you must also install
 % the appropriate glossaries language module. The language
 % modules are distributed separately.

\documentclass{article}
\listfiles

\usepackage[colorlinks]{hyperref}
 %\usepackage{glossaries} % abbreviation will go in main glossary
 \usepackage[acronym]{glossaries} % make a separate list of acronyms

\makeglossaries

\longnewglossaryentry{par}{name={par}}%
{%
  A long description with a paragraph break.

  This is the next paragraph.
}

\newglossaryentry{sample}{name={sample},
description={a sample entry}}

 % set the acronym style:
\setacronymstyle{long-short}

 % This contrived acronym has non-standard plural forms.
 % These are specified in the optional argument.
 % Remove the optional argument to revert to the default
 % plurals.
\newacronym[\glsshortpluralkey=cas,\glslongpluralkey=contrived
acronyms]{aca}{aca}{a contrived acronym}

 % Keep all definitions in the preamble!

\begin{document}

A \gls{sample} entry and \gls{aca}. Second use: \gls{aca}.

Plurals: \glspl{sample}. Reset acronym\glsreset{aca}.
First use: \glspl{aca}. Second use: \glspl{aca}.

\glsresetall
First letter upper case: \Gls{sample}. First use: \Gls{aca}.
Subsequent use: \Gls{aca}.
\glsresetall
Plurals: \Glspl{sample}. First use: \Glspl{aca}. Next: \Glspl{aca}.

If you want paragraph breaks in the description use
\verb|\longnewglossaryentry|, as with entry \gls{par}.

Title case a particular field:
\glslink{sample}{\glsentrytitlecase{sample}{desc}}.

\printglossaries
