First and foremost:  Please, please, please (gets off of knees) visit
the Applications Database.
The Applications database has helpful information on how to run
programs with Steam and if you want to run these programs in
stand-alone mode.
Second.  What winetricks did you install?  Some of them may actually
cause problems with the programs you are trying to run.
Thank you.
