2013 SolidWorks STEP Import issue

I just updated my system to SolidWorks 2013 with the latest patch.  When I try to import any file it does a first round Parse 1 and a second Parse 2, then gives an error stating the template settings are incorrect.  I have modified and changed every combination of import setting and it results in the same failure which if bypassed will either yield a part or assembly file with nothin in it or it crashes SolidWorks.  I have tried this with 3 different STEP files as well as confirmed they work on another machine with SolidWorks 2012 installed.

 

What is the recommended settings for a STEP file.  I have also done this with an IGES file and yielded the same results.  Any help would be appreciated.
