Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Setup cannot complete the Exchange 2007 upgrade if the local computer is running a version of Microsoft Forefront Security for Exchange Server that is not supported for use with the following versions of Exchange 2007:
Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1)
Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 2 (SP2)
Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 3 (SP3)
Exchange Setup requires that the version of Microsoft Forefront Security for Exchange Server are upgraded. Setup also requires that the Microsoft Forefront Security services are disabled before the Exchange Server 2007 upgrade can continue.
To resolve this issue, upgrade Microsoft Forefront Security version 10.0 for Exchange Server to Microsoft Forefront Security for Exchange Server SP1 or to a later version that is appropriate for the version of Exchange that you are installing. Then, disable the Microsoft Forefront Security for Exchange Server services before you resume the Exchange Server upgrade.
