Stuck on "Please wait while the virtual drive is being created."

Hello!  And, apologies if this has been addressed elsewhere, but I could not locate it.

My first time trying to use PoM, and trying to install Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee.  I first tried to install via download, but PoM would not recognize or utilize my GOG.com login.  So I downloaded the .exe myself to my Macbook.

Now, I am trying to install the game directly with this .exe, but the installation hangs up on the window of "Please wait while the virtual drive is being created...." for now, I guess it has been an hour?

This is the message from the Debugger:

Help this newb figure out what he is doing wrong...is it me, or is it this particular game?  Thanks.
