Currently trying to download Little Fighter 2 on PlayOnMac 4.4.2

There seems to be a files mismatch for vcrun 2005. The following is the debugger from the install script:

Most of the Microsoft packages that are supposed to be called in by (Winetricks?) the "Install Components" menu don't seem to even download currently on v.4.3.4, let alone work - it seems like (i) Microsoft is moving the files about and (ii) POL doesn't update to the new locations. This is vcrun but I'm also getting it for directmusic and all the other commonly-used ones. Is it because the most recent version of windows supported by Wine is Win7 which is now being very heavily "retired"?
