Hmm, don't know WP9 much, but WP used to have a 
feature called (IIRC) enhanced file dialogs. It was an 
option to replace the standard Windows File Open and 
such like dialog boxes with enhanced ones.

Those enhanced dialog boxes sometimes caused WP to 
crash on some systems (regular Windows ones).

You might see if there's an option under preferences to 
not use enhanced dialog boxes and see if that helps.
