Introduction

This document provides a summary of enhancements, support information, and installation instructions for FortiClient (Windows) 7.0.0 build 0029.

Review all sections prior to installing FortiClient.

Licensing

FortiClient 6.2.0+, FortiClient EMS 6.2.0+, and FortiOS 6.2.0+ introduced a new licensing structure for managing endpoints running FortiClient 6.2.0+. See Upgrading from previous FortiClient versions for more information on how the licensing changes upon upgrade to 6.2.0+. Fortinet no longer offers a free trial license for three connected FortiClient endpoints on any FortiGate model running FortiOS 6.2.0+. EMS 7.0.0 supports a trial license. With the EMS free trial license, you can provision and manage FortiClient on three Windows, macOS, and Linux endpoints indefinitely. The trial license does not include management of Chromebook endpoints.

FortiClient 7.0.0 offers a free VPN-only version that you can use for VPN-only connectivity to FortiGate devices running FortiOS 5.6 and later versions. You can download the VPN-only application from FortiClient.com. You cannot use the VPN-only client with the FortiClient Single Sign On Mobility Agent (SSOMA). To use VPN and SSOMA together, you must purchase an EMS license.
