I had read about the potential memory leak, so that's why I tried increasing the RAM in the VM from 2gb to 4gb to 8gb with no effect. Each time I changed the VM setting I had to completely shut it down and restart Alteryx.
This morning I was continuing a "Challenge" and put a browse on the canvas which actually showed the data profile. Surprised at this, I opened the TutorialData and attempted to view the data profile there. Thinking I might need to wait for it to render, I set my timer to 2 minutes and waited. No effect.
But this got me thinking, I opened up "Task Manager" and my CPU was throttled to 100% and staying redlined.
I decided to shut the VM down and increase my VM from using only 1 core, to using 2 cores. I rebooted, opened task manager, opened Alteryx and watched the CPU tach up and down.
When I then added the input to "TutorialData" and connected a browse to it, I was able to render the data profile fairly quickly. No more "Profiling: 0%"
Success. If you run into this issue in the future, increase your VM's cores.
