+Bug#: 79115
+Product: Mono: Class Libraries
+Version: 1.1
+OS Details: 
+Status: NEW   
+Priority: Minor
+Component: System
+AssignedTo: mono-bugs at ximian.com

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: Win32Exception does not use win32 FormatMessage API
+Currently, (System.ComponentModel.)Win32Exception does not use the win32 
+FormatMessage API to lookup the message corresponding with the native 
+win32 error on Windows.
+Instead we're hardcoding a (small) set of known win32 error in the 
+W32ErrorMessage method. Hardcoding this list should only be necessary on 
+Linux (unless there's a solution for this too).
+To reproduce, compile and run the following code snippet:
+using System;
+using System.ComponentModel;
+public class Test {
+  static void Main () {
+    Win32Exception ex = new Win32Exception (10);
+    Console.WriteLine (ex.Message);
+  }
+Expected result:
+The environment is incorrect
+Actual result:
+Some sort of w32 error occurred: 10
