[Tex/LaTex] Error : (Input index file full.idx not found. Usage: makeindex ). I am using texstudio editor


I am using Texstudio editor. I am using Latex to write my thesis.
I have had no problem in the past that Latex list the references in my thesis write-up successfully. Suddenly, when I added one more reference (bibtex), and did the indexing for the references using the shortcut F12, I got the following error:

Process started: makeindex.exe "full".idx

Input index file full.idx not found. Usage: makeindex [-ilqrcgLT] [-s sty]
  [-o ind] [-t log] [-p num] [idx0 idx1 ...]

Process exited with error(s)

I already tried the solution here but It did not work for my case!

I hope that you help me in solve my problem.

I had the same problem and I solved it as follows: Same error message appeared when I tried to compile my text. I rebooted my pc (Windows 10 and its updates, you know...), I read threads everywhere and tried what they said but nothing. Then...i realized that I, with no intention, had changed the function of the "Quick compilation" button and I was, since the problem popped up, trying to run a MakeIndex!
