Hi Dinarzarde and Helmut

I checked on Windows (grass 7.4.0 installed using osgeo4w), and installing r.vif using g.extension works fine, but after installing it does not appear in the addon list in the Modules tab. The same is true for a number of other addons I installed. There are, on the other hand, a number of addons that appear in the list (r.regression.series, r.series.lwr, v.kriging, and 6 others).

However, running these addons from the console (type in r.vif on the console) works.

Best wishes

Hi Helmut,

I have been installing r.vif as you have indicated (i.e. by downloading from 
the server using g.extension and opening the tree of installable raster 
addons), but can now confirm after installing both the new and old versions of 
r.vif on a Windows 10 (64 bit) machine, that r.vif isn't listed under the 
Addons in the module tab in both Grass standalone GUI versions 7.2.2 and 7.4.0 
(i.e. there is no plus sign in front of Addons, so there is no way of opening 
the tree of installed addons and selecting and running r.vif).

Best wishes,

I tried GRASS GIS versions 7.4.0 (current stable) and GRASS GIS 7.2.2 (old stable) 
but can't see r.vif listed under Addons in the Modules tab (see attached 
you have to click on the + before "Raster" to open the tree of installable 
raster addons.

One thing I noticed is that when you re-install Grass and then install r.vif 
you get this message:
(Sun Feb 11 16:29:48 2018)
g.extension extension=r.vif url=
WARNING: Extension <r.vif> already installed. Re-installing...
Downloading precompiled GRASS Addons <r.vif>...

yes, it's an obvious message as you install the script from the server over the 
local copy.

I guess by tomorrow the new version of r.vif should be available via the server 
so will try again tomorrow.
the new version is already on the server and should be installable by 
g.extension, see

for winGRASS7.5.svn daily:

for  winGRASS7.4.0:
