The easiest way to fix this is to simply remove your ~/.wine directory.
Wine will create a new one that's set up properly.

Is this an option for you?

It always looks in C:\windows\system32 etc.
So the real question is, what is C: mapped to?
That's controlled by that interface (which manipulates
a symlink c: in ~/.wine/dosdevices).
But again, easiest thing to do is blow away (or rename)
your .wine directory, and let wine recreate it.
