Help with role based xprofile fields display

Hi - I saw in a few posts the Buddypress Xprofiles ACL plugin suggested;

I basically need to only show some added xprofile fields to a specific wordpress/buddypress role. For whatever reason when the above plugin is installed, it won't activate and therefore the menus to use it don't appear.

Is there a fix needed for this or better yet, a supported alternative method to show certain xprofile fields based on role?
