I'd prefer a generic wording regarding the platform, and overall simpler phrasing without examples: "On some platforms, it may also be raised if an operation attempts to open or traverse a non-directory file as if it were a directory." 

The latter doesn't apply to Windows generally. Attempting to traverse a non-directory fails with ERROR_PATH_NOT_FOUND (mapped to C errno ENOENT), and attempting to open a non-directory with a path that has a trailing slash fails with ERROR_INVALID_NAME (mapped to C errno EINVAL).
