Can't load STEP files

I've been having troubles with STEP files since upgrading to 2015.  Our EE uses Altium to design the controls, and would send me STEP files to do interference/fit checks.  With 2014, when I opened the STEP file, Solidworks would parse the file and break it down to all the components, which I would then save all parts and the assembly to load it into other assemblies to check.  Now, when I try to open STEP files, Solidworks says the default template is not valid and asks if I would like to proceed with a blank template.  If I do, I just get a blank file containing nothing.  This happens even with old STEP files that worked perfectly fine before.  Any ideas?
