Performance Routing option not available in Configuration Professional v2

I'm setting up a Cisco 2901 router and attempting load balancing/link aggregation and/or fail-over for my dual WAN connections. Being new to Cisco's IOS software, I'm using CP to help learn IOS, so right now I'm doing most of my configuration via the Configuration Professionsal GUI.  As I understand, the Performance Routing option will help me set this up but I don't have that option available in Configuration Professional; any ideas? I downloaded the most recent version of CP (version 2) I believe; I've reviewed over the often referenced article on this feature at: Cisco Performance Routing and reviewed the Cisco Feature Navigator available at for my IOS release; the feature I'm looking for is documented in a flash presentation at (screenshot below):


A summary of the key results of the IOS "show version" command on this router are:

None of the various GUIs, despite their name, is able to do things "professionally". In return, they often introduce unnecessary and confusing commands.

if you want to learn IOS, and get real results, use the CLI, there's no alternative.

Thanks; I believe I understand what you're talking about regarding the IOS GUIs; I've taken the plnuge to learn the CLI though I do use the GUI to help; this router is so far taking the longest of any I've ever set up. though it is the most sophisticated.

Thanks for this reference; your example has definitely helped me get PfR set up via the CLI

Update: Cisco Configuration Professional v2.1 just released has fixed this. My above comment was based on CCP v2.0
