SafeGuard 6.10 does not include the Configuration Protection Module anymore. If you need the functionality of this module do NOT upgrade the clients to version 6.10 as this will remove the module.
However, removing Configuration Protection during an upgrade from 5.60 will not generate the uninstall password for the Configuration Protection Client.
Due to an unsolvable issue in the 5.60 installation, the uninstall password, needed to uninstall the Configuration Protection Client, will not be generated if Configuration Protection is removed during the upgrade to 6.10. It is recommended to first uninstall Configuration Protection in 5.60 and then upgrade to 6.10. Upgrades from 6.00 do not suffer from this limitation.
