I’m quoting ChristianHJW from the Matroska team:
“VirtualdubMod is more or less abandoned, even if there has been a bug fix release lately. As Virtualdub and VirtualdubMod are based on the old, outdated VFW (Video for Windows) mediaframework from M$, it can not work as a basis for a MKV editor (no support for VBR/VFR/etc.).
It is therefore not recommended to create or edit MKV files with VDM, the tool of choice is mkvtoolnix from http://mkvtoolnix.matroska.org , or better mkvmerge and the GUI mmg.exe."
His post was in 2005, so it’s possible things have changed since.
If you go to http://www.matroska.org/downloads/windows.html and scroll about half-way down the page you’ll find a list of editors.
BTW, you won’t be able to edit the file if you’re not able to play it in the first place. Make sure you have the proper filters and/or codecs for that (also listed on that same page). If you’re wondering what codec your mkv file is in, use videoinspector.

What is MKV?
MKV is one of the file types of Matroska multimedia container. While other multimedia containers like AVI, VOB, MPEG and RM, which had been developed for a long time or not open, MKV is an open free container formats to hold numbers of video, audio, subtitles for better effect. For example, AVI was developed in early 1990s, but it does not support variable bit rate or variable frame rate for smaller file size and better animation quality.
