Your English is just fine, but your report is a bit light on details.
Please provide at least the following:
- revision of xindy (you can check it in tlmgr)
- exact steps to reproduce the error
- exact error message you see

I know little about xindy and nothing about CLISP, so I hope others
can chime in, but at first look the error message appears all wrong to
me.  Where does this $TEXLIVEHOM come from?  The path to runscript.tlu
should be absolute.

Does xindy work with our Perl (to test temporarily remove Strawberry
from the PATH)?
