Install of Crossword Compiler hangs

I've tried leaving the install of Crossword Compiler running for a few hours but the result is the same - it just hangs at the step of setting up the virtual drive, says ("Please wait while the virtual drive is being created...").  I'm running:

Hardware:  MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016),  2.7 GHz Intel Core i7,  16 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3, R adeon Pro 455 2048 MB,  Intel HD Graphics 530 1536 MB

Software: macOS Mojave (10.14.2) [latest], PlayOnMac 4.3.4.

I've managed to install Steam and through that a Sherlock Holmes game (although that was hanging when launching, I found a fix for that on youtube - namely to delete the install script in the vcredist folder).  Crossword Compiler doesn't even install though, but I wonder if the hang is similar.  The debug log follows.  I'm pretty new to PlayOnMac, so not sure where to go from here yet.  Any pointers would be appreciated.

I think I tried another game World of Tanks and also Spider Solitaire and that did the same thing.

Try with a more recent version of wine


Thanks,, that got things a little further. I tried the following.  Clicked on Configure, Right click on Crossword Compiler and changed the wine version from 1.8 to  3.17.  Then clicked on install agiain, got past the virtual drive part, then was presented with Overwrite, Erase or Abort chose Overwrite, install got as far as 'Please wait while Crossword Compiler installs..." which I left overnight but it was stuck there.  Here is the log:
