I'm trying to map a texture to a sphere without UV mapping, and here's my node setup: all info needed

I wanted to set the image texture projection to "sphere", as I saw it being used in a tutorial, but as the picture shows, I don't have the option to use sphere projections. I am using Cycles render and have the texture on a UV sphere, not an icosphere.

In the screenshots shown Blender version 2.71 was installed. One should have upgraded Blender to a newer version as this functionality was added as of 2.74:
