Export SW2011 to STEP to Pro/E Error

I get an error when I export files from Solid Works 2011 in STEP AP214 format and import them into Pro/E. The customer is running Pro/E WF3.0. I have Pro/E WF4.0 as legacy (we are switching to SW).

 

When I import the files into Pro/E the part files all show up as sub assemblies.

I've tried all the switches and options in step and it only gets worse in terms of usablity.

 

Looks like someone else ran into this a while back but it didn't get resolved:

I just need to cover my bases and make sure I'm not missing some options in my export to make it work.
