Amazon Games Launcher crashing shortly after launch

Hi! I’ve tried to install the Amazon Games Launcher through Lutris, but the installer hangs at 99% and never finishes. After that, I’ve created a new wine prefix, installed all dependencies listed in the installer (Amazon Games App - Lutris), added the registry key and json file mentioned there and then launched it. With DXVK enabled, I only get a black screen, but without it, I see the login prompt (looks fine). However, the process exits every time after a few seconds. In the logs I see this error:

0258:fixme:ntdll:EtwEventSetInformation (deadbeef, 2, 02D5C900, 51) stub

Can anybody help me getting this to work?

OS: Ubuntu 20.04
GPU: NVidia GTX970 (with 470.xx drivers)
Runners: lutris-6.14 / lutris-ge-6.14-2 / lutris-fshack-6.14 / lutris-fshack-6.13 (makes no difference)

I installed, but the app closes as soon as it begins. Generally it lasts 30 seconds. Does someone has a workaround?
