Thanx, it worked fine.
I have now coded the muxing and demuxing of all kinds of Wavpack files 
in mkvmerge, our main tool. That means mono/stereo/multi-track 
lossless/lossy/hybrid files.

If you want to give it a try, you can download it here :

You might need the Windows runtime too:

There are HTML documentation files on how to use the tools (mkvmerge and 
mkvextract). And also a GUI for mkvmerge. In mkvextract there is an 
option to strip the correction part of an hybrid-based file.

Unfortunately it's only the beggining, we have the files. Now we need 
players ;) Maybe if I find the time I'll work on a DirectShow filter 
based on CoreTTA.

Have fun with your Wavpack-Matroska files :)
(fun includes chapters, attach covers, lyrics, etc)

mkvmerge can also generate Tags from cuesheet files (.cue)
