It's not the responsibility of that error message to tell someone to
go look up the error number in Microsoft documentation.  If they're
clueful enough to make any sense of the number beyond the strerror
translation we already provide, then they already know where to look.

Even if it were the responsibility of the error message to suggest this,
a URL seems far too transient.
