The error message is as:

uaotfload | Font names database not found, generating new one.
This can take several minutes; please be patient.

    This could be due to a problematic font in your system. You can add such fonts to a blacklist: copy otfl-blacklist.cnf from \tex\luatex\luaotfload in a similar location in a local texmf tree. Update the FNDB.
    Run on the command line "mkluatexfontdb -vv". It will show you the generation of the font database. When it obviously "hangs" at a specific font, add this font to your local otfl-blacklist.cnf. Then run mkluatexfontdb again until it succeeds to generate the database.
