You'll have to talk to a Mac expert. Almost all Macs are configured with case insensitive file system, but advanced users can configure their Macs to have a case sensitive file system. There are many programs, not just Tableau, that don't run with a case sensitive file system.
If someone else set up your Mac for you, talk to them.
Sorry I can't be more helpful.

Was able to get this worked out with the help of the post above. Details are sparse, but here's what I did.
1) Create a new Volume in Disk Utility (I named mine Tableau). Make sure it's not encrypted.
2) Ensure the new Volume is mounted. It should be mounted at /Volumes/<whatever you named the volume in step 1>.
3) Download the Tableau Desktop application and mount the DMG.
4) Install the application from Terminal using the following:
sudo installer -pkg /Volumes/Tableau\ Desktop/Tableau\ Desktop.pkg -target /Volumes/<whatever you named the volume in step1>
5) In Finder open /Volumes/<whatever you named the volume in step1>/Applications/Tableau Desktop...
Thanks for sharing this, Jesse. I'm sure it will be useful for fellow Tableau Community members
This is somewhat outdated. When creating AFPS volumes, the new apple filesystem, in Disk Utility, they are by default case sensitive.
Thank you for the command line invocation, this is a nice workaround of the installer wizard's insistance of "being able to install only on a disk where macOS is installed".
