It seems your files do not contain a PKCS#12 structure (containing the
key and the whole certificate chain). I should have recognize this by
the fact you have one file for each certificate. Sorry.

Maybe you should give the x509 openssl command a try:

  openssl x509 -in filename.crt -inform DES -out filename.pem
