I am trying to install Adobe Illustrator on Windows 7 running in Parallels. The installer launches but stuck at the setup screen saying "Checking System Profile". Any ideas?

According to Adobe KB:

This issue may occur when one of the following conditions are true:

* The Adobe Creative Suite 4 installer cannot launch the user interface for the installer.
* A third-party component is preventing our installer's user interface from launching.
* You are using Windows XP in Normal mode.
* The Windows Installer Service that is included with Windows XP is unregistered or damaged.
