Winetricks, what does 'cached' mean?


Hello, so i'm re-setting up my main partition in a while, and am currently dealing with Wine.
I'm using the winetricks script, and all the programs i listed to be installed by it, are listed as 'cached' I can open up /home/username/.cache/winetricks/* and i can see that the .exe files have been downloaded. I suspect they're not being installed though.
Is there a way to do this through winetricks, or have they actually been installed and i just didn't realize?

Thanks for providing the solution. Please mark the thread as solved (click on thread tools on top, it will display a menu with the appropriate option, i.e. "solved").

Possibly my error, sorry. I think I missed the "solved" label on the thread after it is not displayed in the mail-alert. And since it is such an easy solution I thought it worth while to make it being solved generally noticeable. Again, sorry, and thanks for coming back.
