I am getting the following error when trying to run winetricks vcrun2005.

"vcrun2005 install completed, but installed file /home/compuz/.wine/dosdevices/c:/windows/winsxs/x86_Microsoft.VC80.MFC_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_8.0.50727.6195_x-ww_150c9e8b/mfc80.dll not found"

I then tried the following command:

winetricks dlls list | grep mfc80

This gave the following output:

vcrun2005    Visual C++ 2005 libraries (mfc80,msvcp80,msvcr80) (Microsoft, 2011) [downloadable,cached]

Here mfc80 is colored red.

This is the complete log:

How can I fix this issue?
