Client Security 12.00 cant remove ESET and the Client Security 12.00 Premium removes ok

Im trying install F-Secure Client Security 12.00 in the customer computers and the Client Security 12.00 cant remove the ESET, but the Client Security Premium 12.00 can remove without any problem. As the customer bought the Client Security Standard version instead Premium, I cant put the Premium.

    Hello RobertoSilvaChu,


    There is no technical difference in sidegrade module between CS Standard and Premium.

    The difference could appear, if the machine can or can not download latest sidegrade package from the PM in the beginning of installation. This could not be figured out from the log you provided here. Full fsdiag is required for analysis.


    Best regards,
