### Glossary not printed

Hey,

I use the package glossaries in this way.
\usepackage[acronym,toc]{glossaries}

It works so far in the text, but now at the end of my thesis I wanted to print it out.
\printglossary[type=\acronymtype,title=XXX,nonumberlist=true,toctitle=XXX, style=altlong4colwithindent]

But it just prints out an empty page and there is also no entry in the ToC. The style works, because I already used this for the bachelors thesis and that's why I have almost no idea how I can make it work!

The only thing I can think of is that I have to put some parameters to MakeIndex but when I try this (in TeXnicCenter) I just get errors.
-s "%tm.ist" -t "%tm.alg" -o "%tm.acr" "%tm.acn"

I really need help because I have to submit in two days and I have no clue how to fix it.

When I copied you code to a file test.tex and compiled
1. with pdflatex (pdflatex test)
2. with makeglossaries (makeglossaries test)
3. with pdflatex (pdflatex test)
everything looks as I expect it to... no errors and the acronym shows up in the list as it should.

Did you run the makeglossaries program on the file? You said something about makeindex (which works but makeglossaries tales care of any needed options, style files, ...).

That's strange: your example compiled for me just fine -- including the “ü”
