If you are an administrator, you will always see the version. This prevents modification install and software upgrades from experiencing errors. To verify the modification is working, make sure the option is checked and then view your forum while not logged in.

Rant ---- You probably don't need this modification. Despite much "received wisdom" on the topic, most of the ways you would be compromised would be part of a whole group of possible attacks run without even looking at what you're using on your site. It doesn't matter if you aren't running on Windows, or you don't have Joomla!, Drupal, or phpBB installed as the scripts will try attacks for those things anyway. The only help this will provide is in a targeted attack, and even then a determined attacker can find your version by analyzing the behavior of the forum.
Regardless, many people still feel comforted by hiding the version. Unfortunately, many common ways of hiding the version will break modification installation, patch updates, and other administration features. This modification was created as a way to hide the version in a safe manner without breaking administrative activities.
