Description

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.

 % 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

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