    When trying to install Parallels tools, it fails with a message:

    [Dialogue Box Title] Feature transfer error
    Feature: Resolution Changing
    Component: Resolution tools
    File: C:\Program Files\Parallels\Parallels Tools\Plug-ins service\
    Error: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

    If I hit [ok] the installation stops and then restarts and pukes at the same point.

    Things I've tried:
    - Deleting the Parallels Tools Directory. Made no difference.

    - Selecting only greyed out tools [Custom Install]. This becomes really fun as now, when the installation almost finishes, it crashes the VM and basically hangs the Host OS.

    - On a non Boot Camp Win XP VM everything is fine on the same Host.

    [Platform]
    Mac Book Pro 15"
    OS X 10.4.9
    Processor 2.16 GHz Intel Core Duo
    Memory 2GB 667 DDR2 SDRAM

    [Guest]
    WinXP

    Thoughts?
