Battle.net in lutris installation hangs on linux mint 18

I installed lutris on linux mint 18. No problems except that the lutris: links in firefox don’t work. So i tried to install battle.net from my library. It downloads the file, and starts the installation process and then hangs. I tried on different wine versions, all > 2.0.
I typed lutris -d and tried again:

this is the log:

the latter goes on and on. Is there a resolution to this?
