you can check log files for the error msg abt 1st and 3rd options.
For 2nd option, have you used correct database at the time of EPMA configuration???
Please check in the Database(which have used for EPMA), dbo.DS.Application table contains applications list.
Check out in that table u have applications or not???
At the time configuration, u didn't use correct database for EPMA. so, no applicaions are displayed in the epma.
