Can't install XC16 compiler on MacBook Pro running macOS 15.1 beta, "Catalina"

I can't install the XC16 compiler on my MacBook Pro running macOS 15.1 beta, "Catalina".  MPLAB IDE installs fine, but the compiler goes all the way through its installation process and then complains about a "corrupted file" (see attached screen shot).  Tried twice.  Suspect that's a bogus error message and the installer has run into an AFPS file system or new security sandboxing problem with Catalina.
 
Anyone else see this?  Fix or workaround?  Couldn't get the online tools in MPLAB Xpress to work either (see my cross-posting below).
 
TIA,
 
Mike

    FYI, here's the accompanying report on my difficulties loading header files into MPLAB Xpress:

    downgrade your os. compilers are not compatible.

    Catalina cannot run 32bit apps, so you’ll have to wait until they release 64bit versions. From other posts this is expected to be Q1 2020. The IDE is fine, but the compilers won’t run.

    Thanks for the quick replies.  Looks like I'll have to try the web-based solution for awhile :-)

    or just not upgrade your os (unless you bought new, in which case you're screwed)
    my macbook is on high sierra because it was preinstalled when i bought it, otherwise it would have been yosemite, as in my previous macbook.
     
    Never updated or i would have gained ZERO new useful funcionalities but i would have lost support for most of my hardware for who knows how long. Apple breaks something fundamental at every release and it takes months for developers to catch up because you have to have to have to have to be sure you are not breaking compatibility

    running macOS 15.1 beta

    When you run software labeled "beta", you forfeit any right to complain to other vendors about compatibility issues.
     
    Your options are
    • complain to the vendor (Apple) of the beta-version software
    • replace the beta-version software with a version documented by the vendor (Microchip) of the non-beta software to work with that software
    • STFU and wait
