How do I import xmp files that contain edits from another computer?

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

I edited some images on my laptop and the Metadata Catalog settings show changes are written into the .xmp files.  I copied both the CR2 and corresponding .xmp files to my Desktop computer.  When I imported the images into LR 5.5, the edits did not show up.
How do I get the corresponding .xmp files to update the CR2 files?  Or do I have to start over and import the LR Catalog from my Laptop for just this series of images?
If I send off my CR2 files for someone to edit and they send me back the .xmp files containing the edits, shouldn't I be able to update my original CR2 files???
Thanks, Marc

Also for the info to be read 100% both computers need to be using the same version of LR. (e.g. Lr 4.x will not apply all the info from LR 5.x)
