Hi cygan,
this is probably done with Custom Actions.
Fire up your MSI File in ORCA and have a look at the 'Custom Action' table.
If your lucky, the CA is self explanary and you can set a condition to it in the 'InstallExecuteSequence' table (maybe it is called in the 'InstallUISequence').
If this is not the case, please log the Installation and search for hints, when they are installed.
Are they installed also, if you are installing silently?

Hi Cygan,

nheim is right. They usually resides as a Custom Actions. But if you want to save time and avoid mistakes, you can first check them in your Redistributables in Installshield(Merge Modules). YOu will just need to uncheck the MDAC entries there and you can see that entries of MDAC in Custom Actions and other sections will also be removed.

Not sure with .NET framework if found as Merge MOdule but you can look for it in your CA.

You're doing a TRANSFORMS right?

Hope this help..
