HR Block 2017 won't install: error 1603

I just downloaded HRBlock_Deluxe+State and it won't install -- it doesn't give an error, but looking at the Application logs, it shows error 1603, which appears to be a SYSTEM permissions error.


I have:


1) Reset SYSTEM permissions

2) Tried to install as Administrator

3) Restarted and tried again


No luck. Any advice?
