Does McAfee Agent 5.0.4 work with XP

Whenever we try to push the McAfee 5.0.4 Agent to XP computers we get the following error:

Run now task Agent 5.0.4 Install failed.

Details: Product "EPOAGENT3000" installation failed, reason "No qualifying product for the update"..

We had no problem pushing the 5.0.3 Agent to XP machines.

Given that 5.0.3 was so horribly broken (not remotely compatible with Drive Encryption), I was hoping that 5.0.4 still supported on Server 2003 SP2, but alas it is not.  So we put tags on the XP and Server 2003 systems and updated the client task to exclude deploying 5.0.4 to those systems.
