[#1744] Fix document link on Windows

Sorokin-Anton requested to merge Sorokin-Anton/#1744-fix-document-link-windows into dev

Motivation and Context

VSCode fails to open a document link on Windows


Add file:// prefix to the target of document link: it's expected to be URI by LSP specification, but as in it has wrong type in ocaml-lsp.

Also capitalize the drive letter in document link target on Windows so link will point to e.g. C:... instead of c:...

Now document links are opened correctly
