The important thing is to make sure that you have the “allow installation and restarts” option set to Yes in order to see things happen right away.
I created a separate Windows 10 SCEP policy and deployed it against my collection of Windows 10 machines, whereupon I applied a SCEP 2012 standard desktop policy, modified to include Outlook 2010/2013 exclusions.
Windows 10 takes a different approach and is now able to be directly managed by SCCM without replacing it. Even if you tell SCCM to install the SCEP client when you launch SCEP.exe, on a Windows 10 machine it will launch Defender.

Before version 4.5, MSE ran on , Windows Vista and Windows 7, but not on Windows 8 and later, which have built-in AV components. The license agreement allows home users and small businesses to install and use the product free of charge.
My freshly installed Windows Server 2012 installation with Forefront Endpoint Protection (FEP) installed just wouldn’t update.
