If it's the unmanaged install than techincally it is in Client mode, meaning you will have full rights to admin it.

If you're pushing from the SEPM, than you need to create a group which has Client mode enabled and you just move the client into that group. You can also create an install package and assign the policies from the group with Client mode enabled so it is correctly setup during the install.

once you install the SEPM, the client packages will be imported into it and you can create the client package

May be It's SEPM package not sep Client package.

first you can install sepm than you create sep client package.

Yes, you need the client install. This is the SEPM install.

You should be able to download the client here:

As an alternative to re-downloading again (and as you already have the SEPM download), you can just navigate to the "..\SEPM\Packages" folder and extract (i.e. with 7zip) the sav32.dat or sav64.dat files for the client installers.

Dou you know the password for extract files?

You can't install a self-managed client from the SEP 12.1 Trialware; that would be like giving the software away for free to anyone.

Trialware allows for evaluation of a "managed" environment by installing SEPM first.

OK thanks everybody

i assume that the Full version have a possibility to install in Client Unmanagged Mode.
