How to resolve "Unable to cast object of type 'System.Int32' to type '  '" when parsing a template

If the following error is encountered from cs.CollateralManagement.TemplateParse: 

System.InvalidCastException: Unable to cast object of type 'System.Int32' to type '  '. 

Until we can update Aspose.Words to the most recent version, the current work-around for this error is to open the template in Word 2013 (or later) and "Save As..." using a different file name.  Ensure that the "Maintain compatibility with previous versions of Word" check box is unchecked.
