That there is a clear indication you're attempting to install to the wrong location.
Don't do that!
All Adobe applications need to be installed in the ROOT LEVEL Applications folder, not buried somewhere in your desktop or your User folder.
It's a disgrace that Adobe support was not able to tell you that right off the bat. 
The Root Level is what comes immediately after the name of your hard disk.  The Applications folder there is the default install location for ALL applications.
In my personal opinion, it borders on criminal negligence that the blokes in the installer team even give the user an option to install in locations other than the applications folder.  If it's not a criminal act, it's—at best—a monumental stupidity.
