Reinstall your graphics driver.

The latest version is 1.5.5.

Delete or rename ~/.wine, then run winecfg to create new one. If you have 64 bit Wine installed, create a 32 bit only wineprefix with 

WINEARCH=win32 winecfg

After that try to install vcrun2008 with the winetricks you downloaded.

You didn't mention what version of Ubuntu you're using. 12.04 is very broken with regards to Wine, and if that's what you're using, you may not be able to get this to work until the upstream bugs are fixed.
