Installing 64 bit visual c++ 2010 runtime?

I'd like to try a real 64 bit app, so on a 64 bit Ubuntu 12.04, I tried
sudo apt-get install wine
rm -rf ~/.wine
and that installs fine... but only puts anything in c:\windows\syswow64,
and the 64 bit app I'm trying is rather upset that it can't
find mfc100.dll. The log it writes into c:\users\$LOGNAME\*.html
says (if you look at the source, or click 'verbose' in a web browser)
"platform not supported".
This happens even if I use winecfg to set win7 mode.
Happily, it looks like one can just grab the file from the .cab with
something like this:
cp F_CENTRAL_mfc100_x86 ~/.wine/windows/system32
rm -rf foo
That gets the app I'm trying to the point where it needs a newer
which is great. (Now I just have to get around to following
up on previous posts about how to build biarch wine on ubuntu 12.04.)
But I still wonder why the installer doesn't want to install the 64 bit files.
