Elements Catalog conversion not finding the catalog - Mac

I have worked on a PC for years using elements 7. I bought a mac and decided to purchase elements 11. I transferred all my pictures over from my old PC along with the .pca file. I have since spent hours wondering why elements 11 does not see my .pca file. I have gone back to my PC, downloaded elements 11 there, converted the file with no problem. Then I sent the converted file over to the Mac and it still does not see it.
I have made several albums that I have been working on foe over 6 years. I do not want to lose my catalog.
Someone please help!!!

Since you have successfully converted your catalog on PC, I would recommend taking its full backup on en external hard disk using File >> Backup and then restore it on MAC using File >> Restore. Please ensure to tick "Restore to original folder hierarchy" if you want to keep your folder organisation as is.

Well, I have one question. What is that .pca you are talking about?
