I know that Borland/Embarcadero also uses the two-argument version like Microsoft.  As I said earlier, MinGW uses the two-argument version, although it is currently marked as deprecated.  Just from searching, it appears that Pelles C/LCC uses the POSIX-like three-argument version.   I'm having trouble thinking of any further Windows C compilers at the moment.

The purpose of wrapping the definition in MS_WINDOWS originally was to preserve any behavior that already existed when building with a compiler that uses the two-argument version on Windows without any explicit case being called out for said compiler.
