Apart from the usual user education message that is obligatory in these situations about installing unauthorised software, you have a few options.

  • You could put the user/machine in an exception for the collection in SCCM - so they're not targeted for the installation.
  • In the same vein, you could query ARP as part of your collection building and if XXX software title (the 64bit version) is present then exclude from the collection.
  • Package the 64bit version and insist that they have the packaged version of the software - uninstalling their manually installed version and replacing it with your package.

Hope that helps,
