Ok, first I did this:
> wine VisualBoyAdvance.exe

and got back this:
> wine: cannot find L"C:\\windows\\system32\\VisualBoyAdvance.exe"

So I moved the file from the Downloads folder into the system32 folder in Wine's virtual C drive because it's obviously looking for it there. But when I tried again, this:
> wine VisualBoyAdvance.exe
> err:module:import_dll Library MFC42.DLL (which is needed by L"C:\\windows\\system32\\VisualBoyAdvance.exe") not found
> err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"C:\\windows\\system32\\VisualBoyAdvance.exe" failed, status c0000135
