SCCM 2012 R2 Deployment Issues

Hi, I'm new to SCCM 2012 and just getting ready to try and deploy my first program. I found a short video on YouTube that goes over it pretty well, but I find that I'm missing some features that the instructor is using. The main thing is that under Software Library > Application Management, I see no drop-downs and I can't right-click on the Applications or Packages groups. I don't know if my installation is incomplete or is there a way to toggle them on. I've attached a screenshot for you. I also notice that I'm missing the Folder tab at the top bar next to Search. I see computers in Device Collections and User Connections so it appears that SCCM is seeing people. This system is a Hyper V machine running Windows 2012 R2. Thanks for your assistance.

Can you give use more information.

- what kind of application do you wont to deploy (msi or exe)
- what is the target collection (user or computer)
- is this application required or available to computer / users

Do your account have enough permission to create and deploy applications?

The application is called Sungard Edge and it is a utility billing software. Seems simple just basically a .msi file. I will be targeting a computer collection. The account is a domain admin. I don't even have the option to create a package or application .. like it is  missing.

Go under Administration - Security - Security Role and check if your account is in the Full Admin group.

Then close the console and reopen it.

Click on Application and you have to see Create Application on the left corner.

The account is in the Full Admin group in the location you specified, I've closed and reopened and even rebooted and still no options under the packages or applications.

It must be some sort of security setting somewhere because almost all options are grayed out no matter where I go in SCCM. I looked in the security groups and both accounts that I've tried appear to be full administrators. I've uploaded another image that shows how I can't add another because the options are greyed out.

Apparently it was the evaluation copy and it expired last week (six months) ... I added the key and it is working now.

I found the answer by searching the web as to why some buttons were grayed out.
