  • You can't install FEP or SCEP on Windows 10 because the built-in Windows Defender instance is used instead. Since Windows 8, Defender has been a full antimalware product. It uses the same engine as FEP and SCEP so you are not losing any functionality. From a ConfigMgr standpoint, it will simply manage Defender on Windows 10 in the same way that it manages FEP and SCEP.

    "If you manage endpoint protection for Windows 10 computers, then you must configure System Center 2012 Configuration Manager to update and distribute malware definitions for Windows Defender. Because Windows Defender is included in Windows 10, an endpoint protection agent does not need to be deployed to client computers."

    Edit: Actually, it appears that there is a scenario where FEP 2010 is compatible with Windows 10, but only a specific version/edition:

    "Update KB3073408 enables the installation of the Microsoft Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010 client on computers that are running Windows 10 Enterprise 2015 LTSB edition. Other editions of Windows 10 are not supported."
