Statically Indeterminate Beam

Trying to use the Beam and Colum Calculator to get the deflection on a statically indeterminate beam.

 

I get zero deflection.  Will the BACC handle this (hopefully) or am I doing something wrong (probablly).

I have done most of these calculations by hand in the past and thought I would try the beam calculator that is included in inventor to verify.  I come up with the exact same issue.  Expand that little horizontal red line and you will see that you cannot have two fixed points.  I am not sure why inventor includes such an elementary beam calculator as opposed to allowing us to have two fixed points?  Anybody?  Autodesk?
