You shouldn't need to launch OpenMW through MO2 (even if you use MO2 to manage your mods, there's an export plugin), and even if you did, not doing so wouldn't cause OpenMW to crash.

Mo2 assembles your data folder from separate directories. If you run from outside Mo2, all the mods managed by Mo2 will be missing, and depending on what odd things you've done with your data folder outside of Mo2, yes, it can cause crashes. Not very likely, but it's possible, I did it before.

OpenMW only crashes when there are bugs in OpenMW. It's likely you'll get warnings and errors in your log and see lots of pink objects and yellow exclamation marks in-game, and it's also possible that you'll get an error popup and the engine will exit when you click its OK button, but those aren't the same as a crash. If you know a way to crash OpenMW, we want to know.
