    Finally got it sorted out by Parallels tech support.
    The first question he asked was whether I had an antivirus application running on the
    MAC side. He told me that if I got rid of the Norton antivirus it would solve the problem
    and it did!!

    I could have saved downloads to my C drive and then they would have installed
    if I didn't want to dump Norton but I decided it was the better solution.
