The manifests are not the problem for SketchUp. SketchUp installs its own version of vc80 globally, and Wine uses it by default, even with the deadbeef manifests in place. Plus, the version of Wine you said you are using, 1.3.24, predates the change that made Wine favor builtin vcrun over native. 

I can tell you that on my system, SketchUp installs and starts up just fine without renaming anything, or any other tweaks, in Wine built from git a couple of days ago. It does NOT work in Wine 1.3.30 because of http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=28642
