SharePoint 2010 Application Management Service Applications Menu options missing

Hi All,

I have a SharePoint 2010 server that has been up and running flawlessly for about 2 years.

The SEARCH feature had never worked until recently. I had You Tubed'd some videos and self taught myself how to enable that feature.

So, now that feature is enabled, all our employees are now asking about the "ADVANCED SEARCH" or the Enterprise Search feature because it's not an option or visible from anywhere within our Sharepoint site.. But when I go into SharePoint Central Admin, then Navigate over to Manage Service Applications in order to enable it, I am missing many options. Please see screen shots and let me know what might be wrong.

which SharePoint edition do you have?
Some features need SharePoint server standard, some need server enterprise.
From a first look it looks like you have just Sharepoint foundation but I would have to double check.

not directly as this is just the version not the edition.
You might be able to check the license in Central administration.
There is also a Powershell command but i am on the road with only mobile access, therefore i have to add the details later.

It was as simple as we were using SharePoint 2010 Foundation. Thanks RainerJ !!
