I have two clients right now that seem stuck between the uninstall of Forefront and install of System Center Endpoint Protection.

Clinets are running Windows 7 SP1 with SCCM 2012 R2 clients

Add/Remove programs have only SCEP no Forefront
When I try and uninstall SECP it says it can't find the needed files
When I try and install SCEP it says you cannot have more than one installation

I have tried rebooting, MSconfig to not load startup programs already.
Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

-Run Ccleaner to wipe out any leftover registry files of SCEP
-Reboot PC
-Uninstall SCEP if still on the list
-Download and run Revoinstaller if problem still persists

Let me know if this works.

Unfortunately this did not work. Revo Uninstaller does not even see the SCEP program but Windows does.

Try running this command:
"%PROGRAMFILES%\Microsoft Security Client\Setup.exe" /x /u /s
