I need .NET Framework 3 (Sony Vegas Pro needs it) but I can't install it cause Wine errors. I have a Virtualbox VM with .NET 3 on it, I copied all the files in the Wine C: drive, and imported the reg key for .NET, but the program still asks me to install it.

What should I do?

you can install .net3.0 in wine ,instructions here ,alternatively you can try opensource alternative of .net called mono

Mono is a free and open source project led by Xamarin (formerly by Novell and originally by Ximian) to create an Ecma standard compliant .NET Framework-compatible set of tools including, among others, a C# compiler and a Common Language Runtime.
