I installed Proxifier on a host with Tectia client (ConnectSecure), and now the tectia client is complaining about the winsock catalog and capture installation. Is there a known incompatibility? What can I do to fix this?

Installing Proxifier after ConnectSecure or Client with Transparent Tunneling will break the Capture component.

If Proxifier is installed after installing the Tectia Capture component, Proxifier modifies the winsock catalog and appears to not follow proper "Best practices" as recommended by Microsoft.

Proxifier installs itself over the TCP/IP base provider and puts it on top of the winsock catalog. This means that Proxifier will capture all applications that use TCP/IP and will pass them straight to the base provider (overriding any other layers that may exist, i.e., already installed).

On the other hand, if the Tectia Capture component is installed after Proxifier, Proxifier will refuse to work and will request to reconfigure the winsock catalog (which will reorder it and then Tectia Capture component will not work).
