Can't refine selected components


I am just trying simple thing, create a polygon, click number 3 for subdivision, when I select the vertexes and try to refine selected components I get this error:

// Error: file: /Applications/Autodesk/maya2013/ line 145: No valid subdivision surface or subdivision component selected. //

Anyone knows what does it mean?

Thank you

my only advice would be to just do a repair install, or reinstall altogether.

the problem is not your install. just pressing 3 doesn´t make your poly a subd so you can not refine it. go to modify-convert-poly to subd if you want to use these kind of subd features.
