Many thanks Paulo and Helmut. Have an osgeo4w installation of grass 7.4.0, so will run it on the console.

Best wishes,

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
