I found this in the help file:
Use (convert) a catalog of a previous version
When you open Elements Organizer for the first time after installation, you are prompted to
convert catalogs from previous versions. When you click Yes, catalogs from the previous
version are converted and renamed.
If you have not converted catalogs earlier, use the following procedure to convert catalogs
from previous versions.
Note: Adobe recommends that you take a backup of your previous catalog using File > Backup Catalog.
1. In the latest version of Elements Organizer, select File > Manage Catalogs.
2. Click Convert.
3. Select the catalog from the list that is displayed.
4. Click Done.
Try this and see if it works.
Do you see an error message or does it stop at particular stage during conversion. Can you post a screenshot if feasible?
I found the training video and went back and did the PE 10 optomize and
repair. Then I found the name of the 10 catalogue. Finally PE 11 asked for
previously converted files (It hadn't found the PE 10 catalogue before) and
when I found that catalogue and told it to convert--it did so.
Funny thing. It stopped at 36% and took a long time going through several
million files like
Then it raced to 100%, and, voila, my 50,000 pix came up.
Now I am concerned because Carbonite doesn't seem to be backing up all
A month or so ago when I wrote tag and other info onto file names through
PE10, it took Carbonite a month to back up all the changes. Now I don't
see much backup work for Carbonite after I did the conversion to PE11.
I have been buying the new programs since PE2, so I have done a lot of
changes. I always keep at least the current program and the last on the
computer in case of problems. It has helped several times when something went
bad in the current PE pgm.
Thanks for the help.
