This is a flawed idea. You can copy some dlls from windows but not
all. A lot of microsoft dlls need to be installed properly because
they need registry entries or manifests.

It's best to install dlls properly and winetricks will help with that.
It's also best to only install the needed dlls especially if you want
help here.
