This seems very odd. I'll have a look at our scripts but this DLL should not come into play at all for DITA.

This DLL looks at the current CSS used to style your document during editing and generates an XSLT file used to transform your document into HTML when previewing in Page Preview, but it is not used for DITA. For DITA the DITA OT is run if you switch to Page Preview to generate either HTML or PDF.

I would think a reinstall might help, but not necessarily if the DLL in question really is this one. There have never been any reports of crashes with this DLL until now, but the real issue here is that it should not even be running in the first place.
