    How can I open a catalog created on Win7 LR 1.4.1 on new Mac with latest LR 3.6 download? Too new!!!

      Any ideas please...I have transferred the media files and catalogs via my network, definitely onto the pictures folder of my MP 2011 Intel Mac. I go to open the catalog and get this peculiar message saying..


      The Lightroom catalog named “Lightroom 3 Catalog” cannot be opened because it is too new to be used by this version of Lightroom. Would you like to select a different catalog?

      The catalog appears to have been created by a version of Lightroom that is newer than the Lightroom version you are using.


      Is the Mac latest 3.6 version of LR really older and unable to read a latest PC 1.4.1 coded catalog?

      Is there anyway of saving the PC generated Catalog in an older catalog format d=so that a mac with 3.6 LR can read it?


      any answers very greatfully received!!
