Are you sure you're using the official Lightroom 4 release and not the Lightroom 4 *beta*?

Do you get any sort of error or warning?

Yes. The official Lightroom 4 release will import your Lightroom 3 catalog. The Lightroom 4 beta release had this function turned off to keep people from converting their working catalogs prior to official release.
