Has this issue been resolved?
Yes, it was fixed with the Windows 10 1903 update. Files that didn't play in fb2k on Windows 10 1809 now play fine here.

Some programs listed above might work now even without that update, if they have been updated to use one of the work-arounds mentioned here.

The issue from the thread 40th.com linked is still present in 1903 with the latest cumulative update. The built-in WMA decoder still isn't lossless for all tracks.

Doesn't surprise me that Microsoft even managed to break their own codec. They introduced FLAC support and then immediately broke it too from what I hear.

Glad I got away from the Windows clown car years ago. From what I hear, it's gotten a lot worse than just shifting around what gets broken. They actually foist the updates on you and then restart your computer without asking, apparently. :/

The update thing has actually gotten a bit better, it used to be a lot worse.
