### Configuration for a Glossary

Hi! I'm kind of new to LaTeX and I'm struggling a lot to make a glossary. I'm using TeXmaker for Windows, but I'm not very good at programing. I'm using glossaries because I read that there is no version of Xindy (somehow better for Spanish users as myself) for Windows, or the solutions I found where rather hard for me to understand.

I wrote the `\makeglossaries` and `\printglossaries` commands, and I made the user command "makeglossaries".

On of my entries looks like this:
`\newglossaryentry{inconel}{   name = inconel,   description = {Familia ... Special Metals Corporation.}}`

There seems to be no errors in the documents as I can compile the document, but when I hit the "makeglossaries" user command, I get this error:
***Call to makeindex failed*** Possible cause of problem: Style name indicates makeindex, but may be in xindy format. Remember to use \setStyleFile to specify the name of the style file rather than redefining \istfilename explicitly. Check 'Documento maestro.glg' for details.

("Documento maestro" is the name of my main file).

What am I doing wrong?

I know that the question may be very basic but I need to do this for my graduate thesis and I'm finding a big wall with this.
