Reproducible windows blue screen...

I've discovered a reproducible crash on my Windows desktop involving the OVR runtime software. I use a tool from Microsoft called 'Process Explorer' which provides greater detail on all the services and applications running on my system than does the default Task Manager.

When you click on a process in Process Explorer it will show you all the open handles, or all the loaded DLLs for a process. However, I've discovered that if I click on OVRServer_x64.exe, I get an immediate blue screen of death (or rather the Windows 8 version of it).

I'm uncertain exactly how prevalent this is. It may be tied to my hardware and software setup, but it's pretty annoying, and its limiting my ability to inspect the state of my system.
