What works

Launcher now installs properly but fails with an Unreal Engine Assertion.  Older version reports this as due to using nvidia proprietary drivers, but their workaround fails.

Attempted (both clean install without native overrides and with vcrun2010/12/13/15 overrides):

WINEARCH=win64 WINEPREFIX=~/EpicWine winecfg
WINEARCH=win64 WINEPREFIX=~/EpicWine wine msiexec /i EpicInstaller-6.1.0.msi /q
WINEARCH=win64 WINEPREFIX=~/EpicWine wine "C:\Program Files (x86)\Epic Games\Launcher\Portal\Binaries\Win32\EpicGamesLauncher.exe" -SkipBuildPatchPrereq -OpenGL
