I am trying to install Elder Scrolls Oblivion from the supported software list. When I go to install I get stuck on the virtual drive creation and the wheel just spins endlessly. I am running Mac OS version 10.14.6. Just downloaded Playonmac 4.3.4.

I had this kind of issue on Linux and have never understand why...   Perhaps look at the installation log file:

I have the same issue so I hope this is considered on topic, if otherwise I appologise and will try to find another thread. 

I am trying to install Heroes of might and magic 3, complete version from GOG. And the virtual drive creation just keeps going, I left it on all night and it was still running in the morning. 

I am using a Macbook Pro from early 2015, macOS Mojave 10.14.5, 2,7 GHz Intel Core i5, Intel Iris Graphics 6100 1536 MB and 8GB RAM. Using PlayOnMac 4.3.4.

Installation log below from the second attempt (I got an alternative how to deal with the data in the virtual drive from the first attempt, I chose to delete the data from first attempt).

Thank you so much for any help with this, fantastic program you have created, looking forward to using it!

Warning: This is a PlayOnLinux script logfile. It does not contain everything that happened in your program\'s virtual drive (wineprefix)
Please do not use this logfile on winehq forum, this logfile is not interesting for wine debugging.

Homm3fan, I don't see anything in the log. I suggest to use a other Wine version (example: 2.22 -> 3.0.3).

homm3fan Monday 30 March 2020 at 22:35

Yes that worked thank you! There were some other errors while installing but they seemed to occur right at the end, and the game works perfectly anyway so far so I won't bother, just say thanks!
