I remember using wine-tricks to install, if I remember correctly, vcrun6 to get Photoscape running in the first place. I also installed Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable, it actually appears twice in the Wine Application Uninstaller.

I downloaded Photoscape 3.3 and it installs and runs fine for me in 1.1.20 without any overrides. The app itself installs Visual C++ 2005, so I don't know why you installed it again.

Try renaming your wineprefix and reinstalling the app to a clean one. You didn't say what Wine version you're using--if it's not the latest development release, upgrade.
