Who says they are wrong?

And that particular reference is inconsistent with several other
references, on MSDN, to this pair of data types; e.g.:
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/kda16keh.aspx
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/zyzxfzac%28v=vs.80%29.aspx

Historically, the __finddata64_t and __wfinddata64_t type names are
correct, and the _finddata64_t and _wfinddata64_t forms are wrong, but
perhaps we should just accept that Microsoft are utterly incompetent,
when it comes to documenting their products, and, on account of the
gross inconsistency on MSDN, declare *both* forms as being "correct"?
