What shall you do?
Provide a build that allows users that paid for your products to bypass the check that is obviously not working. It is not that hard to provide "Advanced" options to allow "Advanced" users to knowingly accept and bypass features of your installer that aren't working correctly. You could also provide a hidden URL to an unbundled set of software for each of the four components that only people that find this forum and thread would know.
As for your thousands of users that are still using XP. What shall you do when they choose to upgrade to 7 like I did today? Shall you ignore them too while insisting they are the unique case you refuse to acknowledge?
