IIS Management does not let me create FTP site

On Windows 7 Pro, I installed IIS and selected the option to also install FTP server.   But when I run IIS Manager to create an FTP Site, the menu option is not there.   I right-click on the Sites icon and all I see is the option to 'Add Web Site', the 'Add FTP Site..." option is missing.

Make sure you've also installed the FTP role for IIS.

1. On the taskbar, click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2. In Control Panel, click Programs and Features, and then click Turn Windows Features on or off.
3. Expand Internet Information Services, then FTP Server.
4. Select FTP Service. (Note: To support ASP.NET Membership or IIS Manager authentication for the FTP service, you will also need to select FTP Extensibility.)
5. Click OK.

I had already checked that but did not notice the checkboxes were only partially selected and greyed out. When I expanded the FTP Server node, I found the checkboxes under that were not selected.  

I works now.  Thanks!
