I wanted to follow up on this hang issue as it is still affecting Windows 8.1 Release Preview, Windows 8, Windows 7 and Windows Vista users.

Here are the top 5 version affected.  Is there a newer version that is available to users and fixes the hang issue?  If so, how can users get the updated version?

Ref 383797 - Hang in splitter.ax!Unknown.  ProblemClass: APPLICATION_HANG_BlockedOn_EventHandle (cfffffff)

On June 26th, Microsoft announced the availability of the Windows 8.1 Release Preview which can be downloaded here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/download-preview

Microsoft has identified a reliability issue with splitter.ax that is occurring on Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista and early telemetry data is reporting the hangs occurring on the Windows 8.1 Preview.   The hang was reported by users when the UI thread became unresponsive for > 5 seconds.  This is affecting mpc-hc.exe and wmplayer.exe the most.

Here is a Stack Trace:

[016] user32!wcscpy_s
[017] mpc_hc
[018] ntdll!_RtlUserThreadStart

Is there a newer version of splitter.ax available that would fix the hangs being encountered?  Thank you for your assistance.
