    You are installing Forefront for SharePoint version 10.  Two reasons why I think that:

    1. In your screen shot, there is no designation for "2010"
    2. SP3 doesn't exist for Forefront for SharePoint 2010.  However, it does exist for Forefront for SharePoint.

    version 10 is plain Forefront for SharePoint
    version 11 is Forefront for SharePoint 2010.
