This has to do with the order that the plugins are loaded by WP. The first one loaded wins. There are other significant differences in these plugins work, they really are not compatible. I’ve run into issue with themes that load ACF4 and require it to be installed and active. What you really need to do is install ACF Pro and go through the update procedure and then deactivate ACF4 and never use it again.
