I’m receiving an error when trying to open sparkbooth 6 after my last Mac OS update. Included is both the error shown and the version of MacOS I am using.

    Mac OS Catalina no longer runs 32-bit applications. So you need to download
    the 64-bit version which is currently in beta from
    Download links are at the bottom of the article

    Did you enable the "identified developers" settings? See attached.
    Sparkbooth is not in the App Store, so you need to enable that setting.

    Not sure why MacOS is displaying that message. The installer and
    application have been signed using Apple certificates and went through
    Apple's notarization process. But glad you got it running.
