PlayOnMac Steam installation stuck at virtual drive creation

It does not seem to be a new problem, but if I have found a few mentions of it, I have not seen a solution.

When I try to install Steam (but it was the same problem when trying to install other programs), the program is stuck at "virtual drive is being created" and never goes further.

If I go to PlayOnMac/Wineprefix, I see a Steam drive with lots of things in it.

As I saw in the forum that the problem was already  present in 2018, I suppose that it was solved, but I have been unable to find the solution.

My mac is running Mojave 10.14.6 with a Radeon Pro 580 8 Go graphic card

PlayOnMac is 4.3.3

When I looked at the debug console, there was only:

[04/17/21 23:52:45] - Running wine-5.0.2 --version (Working directory : /Users/patrickcrusiau/Library/PlayOnMac/shortcuts)
