Available snap in options
Guys this is what i mean.  The only available option is 6.0, but trying to connect to IIS 7.0.
You must install it as I suggested earlier. The link I posted will help you however it is simply just adding the feature.

To be perfectly clear, I need to actually install iis 7.0 on my computer?
Essentially. It is there but just needs to be enabled in the features so you can use it.
