Issue with addon r.vif in MS Windows GUI installations (stand-alone v. 7.2.2 and 7.0.5)

Dinarzarde Raheem

I have been trying to run the addon r.vif using Grass for MS Windows standalone v. 7.2.2 and v. 7.0.5 on three separate PCs (two have Windows 7 32bit/64 bit, one runs Windows 10 Home 64 bit). I have been testing the r.vif installation using the example on the r.vif page of the Grass 7 addons manual (i.e. this uses  the GRASS 7 Climatic data time series NC location nc_climate_spm_2000_2012).


With v. 7.2.2 (in both Windows 7 and 10) I can load the extension, and can visualise Addons in the search modules tab, but the r.vif. tool is not visible under Addons.


With v. 7.0.5  (in both Windows 7 and 10), I can load r. vif, visualise it under Addons in  the Search Modules tab and run it, but I get the following error message:

Reading in the data ...

WindowsError: [Error 32] The process cannot access the file

because it is being used by another process:

Is there anything I can do to fix this issue?
