Installation fails -- ANTSPerformanceProfiler_9.7.0.101.exe

This is from the event log:

Product: ANTS Performance Profiler 9 -- Error 1722. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor. Action BuildMandlebrotCS, location: C:\Program Files\Red Gate\ANTS Performance Profiler 9\Tutorials\CS\Mandelbrot\, command: cmd.exe /c "C:\Program Files\Red Gate\ANTS Performance Profiler 9\Tutorials\CS\Mandelbrot\build.bat"

I currently am only running the VS2017 Enterprise Preview, so there is no vsvars32.bat where the installation is looking:

error CS2012: Cannot open 'C:\Program Files\Red Gate\ANTS Performance Profiler 9\Tutorials\CS\Mandelbrot\Mandelbrot.exe' for writing -- 'Access to the path 'C:\Program Files\Red Gate\ANTS Performance Profiler 9\Tutorials\CS\Mandelbrot\Mandelbrot.exe' is denied.'

Are there any known workarounds that don't require installing another VS instance?
