SCEP 2012 competitive uninstall

Got a call from a client today who was concerned, because they were deploying SCEP, but it was not removing Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.0 or 12.1…

At the time of writing, only certain products are uninstalled

The client installation checks for and uninstalls the following existing antimalware clients:

  • Symantec Endpoint Protection version 11
  • Symantec Corporate Edition version 10
  • McAfee VirusScan Enterprise version 8.5 and version 8.7 and its agent
  • Forefront Client Security version 1 and the Operations Manager agent
  • TrendMicro OfficeScan version 8 and version 10

on the upside, since you have SCCM, creating an uninstall will be relatively easy!
