Under Windows with Python 3.8+, trying to load a DLL whose dependencies cannot be resolved may produce a misleading error message.

For example, if we are trying to load a library foo.dll that depends on bar.dll, and bar.dll cannot be resolved while foo.dll itself can, Python gives this error message:
"FileNotFoundError: Could not find module 'foo.dll'. Try using the full path with constructor syntax."
(behavior introduced with PR #12302)

Personally, I'd be happy to see a fix that simply adds " (or one of its dependencies)" to the error message.
