Can not choose a shell

I am currently using Playonmac 4.3.3 on MacOs Big Sur 11.5.2. I want to install an old game Cm0304 with some patches.

I constructed a virtual driver to use the ISO file first. But when I want to choose a shell PlayOnMac console appears and says 

You are in 's virtual drive environment

The default interactive shell is now zsh.
To update your account to use zsh, please run `chsh -s /bin/zsh`.
For more details, please visit


The interesting thing is that the default shell is already zsh.

PlayOnMac: ~/Library/PlayOnMac/wineprefix/c/drive_c > chsh -s /bin/zsh
Changing shell for usr
Password for usr: 
chsh: no changes made
PlayOnMac: ~/Library/PlayOnMac/wineprefix/c/drive_c > 


Any ideas how to pass this?

Don't worry about this message,

Your current shell is indeed zsh, but POL/POM4 uses bash instead. This is why macOS is thinking that you are using bash in this context.

Dear Quentin, I appreciated for your answer. Even if this looks a minor problem it does not give me any chance to choose a shell and install the game. In any attempt PlayOnMac console forces me to "update my account to use zsh".

Why? You can still type a command afterwards can't you?

Yes I can but it does not recognize my command to change it and ı can't install the game.
