Hello,  I am new to PlayOnMac so I beg your patience if I have posted this in the wrong forum.  I have a MacBook Pro running Catalina  Version 10.15.7 with Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 MB.  On the Abondoned Games website, I found a file for a Windows CD-Rom game called Private Eye that I had played years ago.  I downloaded PlayOnMac 4.4.2 and tried to open the Exe file.  I get a message that the game crashed and I should try to debug.  When I debug I get the following message:

If anyone could help, I would greatly appreciate it.  As I said, I am new to this program, so it is quite possible I have installed something incorrectly or made a mistake on some other way.  Thanks you in advance. I would attach screenshots of the Private Eye game files but I can't figure out a way to attach them to this post.  And advice would be so greatly appreciated- it is very possible I am making a basic mistake.
