I've expected that, at least, it would be framed by #if
defined(LUA_CORE) checks, but no, it goes right to public. Nasty.

Furthermore, I remember that including windows.h without extra defines
is a bad idea.

When I coded for Windows, I always used to do at least this:

#define NOMINMAX
#include <windows.h>

Much less hassle. (Especially without min and max defined as macroses.)

Also, this (outdated) article suggests there can be even more useful defines:
