[GRASS-user] r.diversity (r.li) options on windows

replying to myself to report an attempt at running r.diversity using the virtual machine option, i.e. osgeo-live-vm-7.0 on windows 7 installed as shown at

In GRASS 6.4.3, settings -> Addons estensions -> Install extension from addons  [g.extension];

fetched repository (http://svn.osgeo.org/grass/grass-addons/grass6) via "Fetch" button;

selected raster -> r.diversity, and pressed "Install" butto;

received the following output message at GUI command console:

g.extension.py extension=r.diversity svnurl=http://svn.osgeo.org/grass/grass-addons/grass6
Fetching <r.diversity> from GRASS-Addons SVN (be patient)...
svn: Can't move 'r.diversity/.svn/tmp/entries' to
'r.diversity/.svn/entries': File exists
ERROR: GRASS Addons <r.diversity> not found
(Fri Feb 21 15:51:11 2014) Command finished (15 sec) 

Is there a way to do a GUI install or, as suggested in the g.extension help page, one should just copy the r.diversity.py script to the grass addons directory (e.g., /grassdata/addons/scripts/)?

Thanks for any pointer,
