Fracture Tools not working

Blender 2.62 on Win Vista x64. I’ve enabled fracture tools but when I select a cube and use the search to setup fracture shards the tool panel shows Setup Fracture Shards but with no fields to actually set any values.

You’re not supposed to use “Setup Fracture Shards” to fracture an object, it is only to setup physics for already created shards. Use “Fracture Object” instead.

Thanks, I thought I had tried that but obviously not. The wiki page is blank, or was when I accessed it an hour ago.
