    Problems adding SQL Server driver / connection

      I am trying to set up a third party connection for a Microsoft SQL Server database in SQL Developer. I followed the instructions on http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/migration/omwb-getstarted-093461.html , but afterward when I click the green '+' button for the New Connection dialog, nothing appears.

      I am using SQL Developer v3.02.09. Here are the steps I followed:

      1) Download version 1.3.0 of the JDBC driver from http://sourceforge.net/projects/jtds/files/jtds/
      2) Extract archive to \AppData\Roaming\SQL Developer
      3) In SQL Developer, Tools-->Preferences-->Database-->Third Party JDBC Driver-->Add Entry
      4) Select jtds-1.3.0.jar and click OK
      5) Restart SQL Developer, click the New Connection button. Nothing happens

      I have also tried selecting the directory instead of the .jar file in step 4 above. In that case the New Connection dialog appears, but there is no tab for SQL Server, only Oracle and Access.

      Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
