SQL Compare hangs on "Calculating work to do" since upgrade

After installing SQL Compare whenever I attempt to create a change script or deploy using SQL compare it just hangs on "Calculating work to do".

I've done following:
1. reboot
2. uninstall/reinstall
3. I turned on verbose logging and get a bunch of errors about "Failed to resolve item"
e.g., Failed to resolve item RedGate.SQLSourceControl.Engine.Interfaces, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=7f465a1c156d4d57. Requesting assembly = RedGate.SQLSourceControl.CommonUI, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=7f465a1c156d4d57. File C:\Program Files (x86)\Red Gate\SQL Compare 13\RedGate.SQLSourceControl.Engine.Interfaces.dll not found.

I did a compare where there was a single change between 2 databases and let it sit there at the "calculating..." step and after about 4 minutes it did finish.  

Perhaps this is just a performance issue? On my first attempt with several differences, I eventually killed it after about 20 minutes.
