GravityZone And FortiClient VPN – How to work around!

To ease installation over existing security software, Bitdefender Endpoint Security automatically checks for and detects a large number of incompatible security programs at installation time (the full detection list is provided at the bottom of this document). The process to bypass this detection is explained below.  You can bypass all, or you can bypass a single application, like the FortiClient VPN.
  1. From GravityZone, Network, Packages, download the full 32- or 64- bit installer; we’ll use the “Windows kit (64-bit)” example here.
  1. The downloaded installer is epskit_x64.zip and will unzip into a sub directory /epskit_x64
  1. In sub directory /epskit_x64, there are 2 files: epskit_x64.exe and installer.xml.  epskit_x64.exe must be extracted again, using a utility like Winrar.  Now all installer files are inside subdirectory:  /epskit_x64/epskit_x64
  1. The “detection” file is /epskit_x64/epskit_x64/KitFiles/detection.xml. You can simply delete the file from the folder and Bitdefender will now ignore the entire list of detected security software, including all previously installed A/V, so we must  manually remove any A/V prior to installation if we delete “detection.xml
  1. To avoid a single detection, such as the Forticlient, we can edit “detection.xml”  to remove the FortiClient detection.  Here I searched for “FortiClient, highlighted the entire Forticlient entry, from <product  to  product> as below, delete, and save
  1. To install, just execute Installer.exe and detection will be ignored
