The same thing:

$ xindy --help
/cygdrive/c/Users/Jürgen/Google Drive/Writing/Deutsche Sagen/Sunken Castles Evil Poodles/LatexTests/Test/C:/Users/Jürgen/AppData/Local/Programs/MiKTeX 2.9/scripts/xindy/../../xindy/modules: No such file or directory at C:\Users\Jürgen\AppData\Local\Programs\MiKTeX 2.9\scripts\xindy\xindy.pl line 402.

For the record, this _is_ the location:

Jürgen at J▒rgen-PC /cygdrive/c/Users/Jürgen/AppData/Local/Programs/MiKTeX 2.9/scripts/xindy
$ ls
texindy.pl xindy.pl

It would be enormously frustrating if the problem is the Umlaut in my user name, since that has bedeviled me a bunch of times during my attempts to re-install MiKTeX. Any suggestions for how to proceed?

Best regards,
