I can find it in the patch.:) And actually found it but this week I have no 
time to go into details, I'll have a deeper look at it next week.

The DLL file is used as a data file so the platform doen't matter. It can be 
used easily on Windows using FormatMessage function. But requires PE file 
processing on Unix as it has no native support for PE files and resources of 
it. Structures required to read PE files and resources are documented in 
Platform SDK and there are header files too. The runtime has some support to 
read resources as well. If you need I'll help you more next week.
