VCA not doing anything, no group fader option

When I select a number of tracks right click there isn’t the option from the drop down menu to add Group Channel to the selected channels.
when I select my channels to add a VCA Fader, I get the VCA Fader pop into the mixer, but there isn’t any tracks being fed into that channel therefor the fader doesn’t have any effect on the volume level, the VCA fader moves the other faders but to no effect, see the screen shots.

You have MIDI Tracks selected. This is why you cannot add an FX or Group Channel to the Selected Channels.
