O'Reilly has recently published "Developing Windows Error Messages:
Error Messages that Communicate" by Ben Ezzell. I have not read the
book, but the description in O'Reilly's online catalog (
sounds like it's accurate--messages "notify,,,clearly explain the
error, and most importantly offer a solution to the error." I think
these guidelines apply to any platform, not just Windows.

Microsoft also has online information about writing messages in their
web site's tech support area.
