Chained MSI Upgrade issue

I'm running into a scenario with a chained MSI package that I'm unsure how to resolve:

- Install Main product version 1 that has chained Sub Component version a

- Install a standalone update to Sub Component to version c

- Attempt a Major Upgrade for Main product to version 2 that has a chained Sub Component version b (older version than c)


The upgrade fails because it tries to run the sub component installation which says there is newer version installed. The main product treats this as a failure and stops the upgrade.

Is there a way to prevent the sub component from running if there is a newer version already installed (ideally without having to manually check)? Or for the main product to consider the "new version failure" as not a failure so that it continues on?
