### Index and Abbreviations print ... not the Glossary.

Hello,

The Acronyms/Abbreviations print.
The Index prints.
The Glossary doesn't print.

I can't figure out what I'm missing.

This is a bit of a late reply, and you may have fixed it by now, but have you checked that the shell escape hasn't been disabled? Check the log file for the line:
restricted \write18 enabled.

and also for the line:
runsystem(makeindex -s doc.ist -t doc.glg -o doc.gls doc.glo)

(where the file is called "doc.tex"). It should be followed by "executed safely (allowed)" in restricted mode or just "executed" in unrestricted mode. If it's followed by "disabled", then the shell escape has been disabled and you'll have to run makeindex (or makeglossaries or makeglossaries-lite) between LaTeX calls.
