StarCraft 2 updating problem

I want to patch SC2, but every time I try to run the game's auto-patcher, Wine (and PlayOnLinux on this matter) freezes up.
I have downloaded the 1.1.3 patch file (222Mb) and would like to run it "off-line". Can this be done? How so?
Thanks in advance,

It can be done, here is an example :

wine "Blizzard Updater.exe" --locale="frFR" --patchlist="..\\Updates\\sc2-16117-16195-x86-Win-enGB-campaign" --patchlist="..\\Updates\\sc2-16117-16195-x86-Win-enGB-game" --patchlist="..\\Updates\\sc2-16117-16195-x86-Win-enGB-locale" --patchlist="..\\Updates\\sc2-16117-16195-x86-Win-frFR-locale"

As you can see :
-Patch files must be un the Updates folder of the game (create it if needed)
-Even if you use another locale, the enGB (Europe) or enUS (USA) files must be applied
-Patch must be applied in a precide order : campain->game->locale en->other locale

BTW, SC2 patching is marked as working and the game rated Platinum in AppDB with wine 1.3.6 so using this version it must work without patch manually.

I found that the auto-patcher for me would always seem like it freezes but tends to work anyway if you wait long enough.
