You can learn the basics using mechanica's own help integrated in the software on the menu bar. Sarita is right that you have not probably defined an analysis yet. Or, although you can define all loads and constraints as well as mesh your model under FEM mode, you are not allowed to run an analysis. So make sure you are working under Integrated Mechanica Mode of Pro/E, or standalone Mechanica.
