First, check to ensure your Window definition has the Glossary enabled. Assuming it is, the next step is to try creating a new Window definition. Then configure the SSL to point at the new definition. If that still doesn't coax it to show, try creating a new layout. Just right-click in the SSL pod and choose to create a new layout.
Don't copy the layout as it would be like cloning a cow with a birth defect. You would likely bring the birth defect right into the clone! Best practice is to create it from scratch.

1. Please forgive the stupid question: But how do I configure the SSL to point at the new definition?
I appreciate the help, thank you!
It worked!! Thank you, thank you for all of the help. I now have two projects with two glossaries, life is good.
Now, if I can just figure out why I have topics that keep disappearing...but for now I'm basking in the glow of having glossaries. :-)
I, too, cannot generate a glossary in my .chm file, even though I have terms defined, and I *think* the glossary is enabled (can generate a glossary if I choose WebHelp, anyway). I am not sure where to go once I right-click Windows and then select New Window. I don't know what to select in the Window Properties dialog, so under the Properties section, I selected all the check boxes, and saved it. I went right-clicked Microsoft HTML Help, selected Generate, and I could not select my new window. My only choice was <default>. Any assistance would be much appreciated!

Update: figured it out. I had not right-clicked Microsoft HTML Help and selected Set as Primary Layout. Everything made sense from there on out, and my glossary displays!
