Installing Computer Protection is uninstalling my VPN client??

When installing Computer Protection, it's uninstalling my FortiClient VPN. I looked at events but couldn't find anything, maybe I'm looking at the wrong place.


Please advise...

    FortiClient is marked as "VPN, Antimalware and Firewall" in our sidegrade database so we uninstall it to avoid conflicts between antimalware products.

    If you are sure it does not conflict - you can use "--skip-sidegrade " command line to ignore this conflict.

    For instance:

    installer.exe --skip-sidegrade "FortiClient"

    Note: name is the one which you can see in the dialog which shows conflicting products.


    this command will disable sidegrade completelly:

    installer.exe --skip-sidegrade "*"
