-- Steps to Reproduce

A.  Example Scenario : 
     1.  Open Report Builder
     2.  Connect to a Database
     3.  Open a report template C:\reports\report_name.rdf
     4.  Use File => Generate to File => PDF
         a.  On the file dialog use a network shared location such as: \\server_name\folder_name\report_name.pdf
         b.  Provide report parameters when prompted
         c.  click Run Report
     -->  The report runs successfully
     -->  Repeat step 4
     -->  Instead of opening the file dialog with pre-selected location \\server_name\folder_name\ , report builder crashes with the same exception.

B.  Alternative way to reproduce the crash: 
     1.  Repeat steps A 1, 2
     2.  On step A 3, instead of a local .rdf file, use a template from the remote server such as \\server_name\folder_name\report_name.rdf
     3.  Do previous step A 4
     -->  On step A 4 a, Report Builder is supposed to open a file dialog with \\server_name\folder_name\ and asks you to provide a destination file, but instead it crashes.
