Hi all, since updating to Catalina Beta Path Finder refuses to work, crashes upon startup. Am I the only one?

    I was having problems with Pathfinder crashing on previous versions of Catalina (it was already installed from before), so I deleted it and did not use it. Today I decided to re-download it and got the following error when trying to run it:

    “Path Finder” can’t be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software.

    This software needs to be updated. Contact the developer for more information.
