How to activate "Recognize Features" in Solidworks?

I am trying to run the feature recognition on my imported geometry(STP profile), which is a surface body. However, the "Feature Recognition" is not active. I've already added in the FeatureWorks and run the import diagnostics. Anyone knows how to fix that? Many thanks in advance!:)

Recognize features will not work with only one surface.
Features ... not surface.
When a solid part is converted in stl format, solid became surfaces, recognize features will try to convert, you surfaces in solid, choosing some features, mostly will not work.
Loft, boundary, loft cut are not available in recognize features... can be used in simple parts with basic features boss extrude, extrude cut, revolve, filled, hole...
