    Perhaps telling us the error messages that you get might help.
    Also there are probably far better ways to achieve whatever it is you are trying to do than to use the old legacy libraries. (Also V2 is out as at 3/7/2016 - be that sometime on March or July 2016)

    I have problems recompiling old projects (I used 32bit and Plib compilers), for new firmware I have no problems
    The plib installer is a 32bit executable and on mac os Catalina it does not start

    I feel your pain. It always pissed me off how many companies (not only microchip) decided to use self extracting archives instead of just providing the archives. Having to set up VMs because it is a 16bit executable (yes, dealing with oooooold stuff sometimes) or because only a win exe is provided and my machine is a linux/osx one
     
    Can't help you right now but tonigh, when i come home, if you don't have found a solution i'll extract the archive and send you a wetransfert or mega or something

    I assume the PIC24 version has the same problems that the PIC32M version, ie. the installer broke long before Catalina. It'd be nice if Microchip repackaged the libraries, but legacy is legacy.

    For now I have solved installing everything under windows
    I have created a virtual machine and keep the old versions on it
    Thank you
