I am using FortiClient v1.0.1041 in a Virtual PC (via Parallels Desktop) on a Mac with M1 processor.
The structure of the M1 processor means that Windows 11 can only be used as an ARM version. In this Windows, the FortiClient can only be loaded from Windows Store.
It must be said that the Virtual PC is considered subordinate in the network (due to technical reasons) and therefore FortiClient cannot be accessed from MacOS in Windows active.
Some applications go more elegantly on Windows (SAP for example) and for some applications it does not matter. Therefore, for such cases I have installed FortClient 7.0.7.0245 for Mac OS. If this is active, both OS (Mac OS and Windows OS) can access the VPN.
The disadvantage of the Mac version is that since version 7 the config is encrypted and therefore you can not set that the password can be saved.
The disadvantage of the Windows ARM version is, it deactivates itself in sleep mode, select params in the advanced settings make sense, and it must be selected whether the VPN is used in private / public networks.
For the Windows ARM version, the traditional client is not available in the console, but the Windows system settings can be used, where you can let off steam.
