Does Windows 7 support running Hyper-V Manager?
It already does. You can get the RSAT tools from here
They include the Hyper-V manager for Windows 7.
After installing the above download, go to Windows Features in Control Panel and choose the 'Role Administration Tools'. Select Hyper-V Tools from there.
Edit: Link updated to current version.
3+1 because your the only one who actually answered the question correctly :)– WayneJun 24, 2009 at 22:52

You might also want to be aware that although Windows 7 can manage Hyper-V on 2008, it can't manage all of the features of Hyper-V 2012, including the free hypervisor product.– leftcaseMay 16, 2013 at 15:50

Windows 7 cannot host Hyper-V. There is a new version of Virtual PC that you can use on it.
The Remote Administration tools can be downloaded here. It includes Hyper-V manager but must be enabled in the Windows Feature activation in the control panel.
Check out this tutorial Manage Hyper-V remotely from windows 7, worked for me
