Problem in installation & usage of JIRA's VSS Plugin.

I have installed the JIRA's VSS Plugin of which version is 1.0-beta-5 and Jira's version is 4.4.3.
But I have met a big problem for using this plugin.

When I click the 'VSS Commits' Tab, the Activity Menu & it's all tabs are disappeared.

My Evironment is like below;


1. OS : Windows Server 2003

2. VSS installed path : C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual SourceSafe

3. VSS Project path : D:\VSS_TEST (project name : test)

4. Version : JIRA 4.4.3
VSS Plugin 1.0-beta-5

5. file

# Microsoft Visual SourceSafe Configuration

# Full path of the directory where "ss.exe" is located.
ssExe.dir=C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Visual SourceSafe
# Use this syntax if "ss.exe" is located in another computer over your LAN: ssExe.dir=\\\\MYSERVER\\Microsoft Visual SourceSafe

# Full path of the directory where "srcsafe.ini" is located.
# This is equivalent with your SSDIR environment variable, but the plugin uses this setting instead of the environment variable.
# srcsafeIni.dir=\\Program Files\\Microsoft Visual SourceSafe\\databases\\simple
# Use this syntax if "srcsafe.ini" is located in another computer over your LAN: srcsafeIni.dir=\\\\MYSERVER\\databases\\simple

# VSS authentication information.
# Uncomment these to login to VSS with a specific account.
# If they are not defined or empty, anonymous access will be used.
# (Whitespace is trimmed.)

# Date format of the VSS history entries.
# It depends on the settings in Windows "Control Panel" -> "Regional and Language Options".
# (For the pattern letters, see
vss.logDateFormatPattern=yy/MM/dd hh:mm

# VSS databases to index.
# You can define multiple paths as "vss.project.1=...", "vss.project.2=...".
# (Whitespace is trimmed.)
# vss.project.1=$/TestA
# vss.project.2=$/TestB
# vss.project.3=$/TestC/src

How can I fix this problem?
What is wrong?

Oh my mistake.~!!

This plugin is avaliable for just JIRA 3.11 to JIRA 3.13.4.

My JIRA version is 4.4.3 and so is not supported. Oops.

Would be great if there was a version that was supported by JIRA 4 or 5 - did you find any work arounds or just went without?
