I made a file using AE CS6 running on a Windows 7 machine. I took the file to the work lab and ran it on AE CC running on a MAC. Now my Windows AE says the file is incompatible as it is A MAC version 13. I have done this before without a problem. Can I recover my file?

You can't have done that before -- older versions of After Effects cannot read the project files of newer versions.

However, Ae CC has the option to down-save to CS6. In Ae CC, File > Save as... > Save a copy as CS6.

Of course, new features in CC that are not present in CS6 will not translate.
