Ok, I managed to solve this problem, quicker than I thought.
First, the peer-to-peer transfers were set to disabled.
Second, the problem was related to ie not being installed and the most referred to solution was to install ie7 through winetricks. However, ie7 did not install due to this error:
"wine: Call from 0x7bc4a9f0 to unimplemented function msvcrt.dll.?? _U@YAPAXI@Z, aborting"
I tested the solution of configuring wine to use the builtin library of msvcrt before the native one (Builtin then Native), attempted to install ie7 and it worked.
Then I opened the launcher and it didn't crash as usual.
