    I've never heard of it.
    How do you know there ever was one?

    I think that might be the Mac version.

    I don't need the world to know my name, but I want to live a life so all my great-grandchildren proudly remember me.

    On my Windows 10:
    In Firefox the Download Box opens, but without any interaction a message box pops up ofer the Download box after 1 second, telling that:
     
    C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Local\Temp\D3GVowaC.dmg.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read.


    Same with Microsoft Edge, it cannot read the dmg file.
    Google Chrome says "Network error".

    So the problem for me is reproducible for the current version 2.10 (osx)
    while from the archive you can download the previous version 2.05 (osx)
    http://ww1.microchip.com/...tall-osx-installer.dmg
     
    You could report it to Microchip

    The link in Post #1 worked for me earlier and downloaded xc8-v2.10-full-install-osx-installer-2.dmg, but now it directs to https://www.microchip.com/

    ... very strange, I tried now ... on macOS (10.14.6 Mojave), regardless of whether I try with Chrome or Firefox, I can't download anything and I am redirected to the Microchip home page, but if I do the same with Firefox on Windows 10 ... I can download the .dmg  :o

    Maybe an antivirus problem on macOS ...

    For Your Info:
    • the XC8 development team actually use Macs (the only reasonable-and-legal way to build a binary for OS X is under OS X), so the .DMG will definitely exist, and
    • as far as anybody can tell several of the disparate teams handling the website/servers are skill-deprived, so this sort of mess is unsurprising.

    Same problem here. Can't download XC8 v2.10 for Mac, tried several browsers on macOS and Windows 10. It just redirects to the home page when I click the download link. (the XC16 and XC32 links work fine).
