Since most Windows programs run off of DLLs (they have different names and extensions on different OSs) it's impossible for me to answer your question as I have no idea what DLLs you're talking about. Try opening your System32 folder sometime and taking a look at the vast number of DLLs available.
Photoshop has a special DLL called Plugins.dll (or something like that) that is sometimes required to run special plugins. And if they were compiled with Visual C++ there might be a need to add a Visual C++ runtime library to your system to get them to run if Windows 8 didn't come with it.
From there, as I imagine you know, 64-bit Windows requires that you add the 32-bit DLLs to the SysWow64 folder instead of the System32 folder in your WIndows directory. It doesn't hurt to add them since Windows isn't looking for them. Though I can't gurantee it will work. Your other option would be to try Windows 7 compatibility mode.

I decided I didn't have anything to loose. I took those Windows 7 DLL's and copied them into the SysWOW64 folder. I made sure to NOT overwrite anything. There were three newer versions that were already there. I then tested the plugins that I couldn't get working before and they all now work.
The only problem I still have is that the Ulead Art Texture installer does nothing at all. But since I know that a lot of people were never able to get it working anyway, I am not going to worry about it. It would be nice to have it back again but I will deal with it.

This is one of the things i DO like about PSP - the filters just keep working for the most part if you keep your windows .dll files up to date!
