in some cases yes. but you should probably only use them if you read that they'll solve a specific problem you have, because often, the best results are from following what people have done over at winehq.org for the specific program you're trying to get running and more often than not they dont use widows dlls i dont think. best results are usually by using the specific version that's listed as working well, with any patch they suggest etc
