I'm trying to install FEP 2010 client on Win7 x86 computer but right after launching the setup after UAC confirmation I'll get an error message:
Microsoft Security Client installation error
The Microsoft Security Client Installation Wizard can't find files that are necessary to complete the installation.
To install this program, please download the installation again from the Microsoft Security Client web site.

Make sure that Base Filtering Engine service is running then try to install FEP again. Otherwise if the problem still exist, give us the content of EppSetup.log

I got this error when trying to install FEP2010 with MSE allready installed. Don't know if it will come when installing on machines using other types of antivirus.
I tought FEP2010 should replace existing AV when installing without the /noreplace switch?

It will only uninstall the following AV, and MSE is not one of them,so you will need to uninstall it before installing the FEP client.
Symantec Endpoint Protection version 11
Symantec Corporate Edition version 10
McAfee VirusScan Enterprise version 8.5 and version 8.7
Trend Micro OfficeScan version 8.0 and version 10.0
Forefront Client Security version 1 including the Operations Manager agent
