Fonts display incorrectly in wine

I am using wine 0.9.8
And when I run PowerCalc.exe (it is one of the M$ Windows XP PowerToys) in wine, the fonts it display is incorrect and unreadable.
I include the screenshots of that windows so you can know what happened

What should I do now, I cannot use the software with that fonts

If you can copy native windows fonts than do it. Probably you'll need to do
something with them (at least you should create fonts.dir and fonts.scale or
something, it is well documented) and add to you usual X's font cache.
