SolidWorks Education Edition 2014 won't install

Note that this version is the I start the SolidWorks 2014 SP2.0 installer and immediately get the error box that says Windows 7 service pack 0 is not supported and that I need to install Windows 7 service pack 1.  I checked the Microsoft update log and service pack 1 is already installed.  I can't install SolidWorks until I can get past this first screen.  Is there a workaround?  I have tried running the installer from the supplied DVD, copying all of the files to the HD and installing, and downloading the SP4.0 installer.  I also tried switching video cards and drivers from the original ATI Radeon HD 4300/4500 to a Nvidia Quadro FX 580, and combinations of those things AFTER removing my computer from active director and reinstalling and reupdating Windows.


I have a Dell Studio with 8 Gig of Ram, the Nvidia Quadro FX 580 video card, running Windows 7 Enterprise (with SP1 installed), and the computer is not currently on active directory.  Can anyone help?
