You'll notice that 8 (.04 or .10) is not listed. Even if you got the download to work it wouldn't be right. I do not think using a binary/source meant for 9.10 or 10.04 will work with 8.x. I could be wrong though.

So if you have a PC with an internet connection, Just burn a newer version (or a new distro!) to CD or DVD ... These things are free, No reason not to stay up to date. Also, Zorin which is built on Ubuntu comes with Wine installed (as did the other distros I am using). Updating or switching may save you all this hassle and they will be supported.

I sincerely hope this helps, You really seem to be having a rough time, and that is never fun for anyone. Good luck!
I'm hoping it helps too, but the OP doesn't seem to be listening to what folks are saying. Very tempted to quote John Wayne....
