Elder Scrolls Online (no Steam) installer stuck on "Updating Wine prefix"

Trying to install ESO with the DIVX installer as I do not own ESO on Steam, but purchased it directly from Bethesda. I try to install it via the normal methods, but it downloads the EXE and gets stuck on

Updating Wine prefix.

lutris-wrapper: /home/ronaldo/.local/share/lutris/runners/wine/lutris-5.6-2-x86_64/bin/wine
Running /home/ronaldo/.local/share/lutris/runners/wine/lutris-5.6-2-x86_64/bin/wine wineboot --update
Initial process has started with pid 213774
Game is considered started.

After about 45 mins its just stuck here like this. I see 1 process as:

213776 wineboot.exe C:\windows\system32\wineboot.exe --update

Any thoughts on how to deal with this and get it installed?

same problem here.

Running /home/adonis/.local/share/lutris/runners/wine/lutris-5.6-2-x86_64/bin/wine wineboot --update
Initial process has started with pid 16137
Game is considered started.

ps -ef output:
➜ ps -ef | grep 16137
16137 16134 0 03:26 ? 00:00:00 wineboot --update

If you are still facing issues I managed around it.
I just did a ps -ef | grep lutris and killed the wine process (16134). the installer finished and I was able to play the game.
