WindowsError

Raised when a Windows-specific error occurs or when the error number does not correspond to an errno value. The errno and strerror values are created from the return values of the GetLastError() and FormatMessage() functions from the Windows Platform API. This is a subclass of OSError. New in version 2.0.
