This article describes two alternative methods to configure a standalone FortiClient VPN. 
Solution
There currently is no standalone FortiClient for VPN. However a couple of alternatives are available.

1. FortiClient App

If running Windows 8 or 10, download the FortiClient App from the Microsoft store. This App can only be used for SSL VPN.
