I do not know if Unpkg does more than extract the application package. I have tried with Suspicious Package to extract it, and it does not open. Skip the icon for fifteen or twenty seconds until it closes with a message:

For me, that the vast majority of programmers find it impossible to continue fighting against Xcode and its handling of libraries in versions before 10.12. Several recognize it and list simply for it as incompatible captain to not have to give support.
This makes it unsafe to update anything today without previously checking its operation. Not in MAS, Setapp, MUD or any other. Everything has to be done manually, and testing whether or not to open the new version. So MUD loses its usefulness. If in addition, when the same manufacturer prohibits the use of a specific version of OS X, and still maintain MUD as compatible, problems accumulate.

This should have been a comment and not a review. It's not Microsoft's fault you're using an old version MacOS that came out in 2015.

Geez, if 2015 is old,, I must be positively ancient.....potentially even prehistoric given the way things are going in the software industry.

Advice: Grab yourself a copy of Parallels Desktop 14 and create your OS versions that you need to run (and stick to the OS you are comfortable with, even on El Capitan). You dictate the terms of which OS you want to run, not Apple. Want to run the latest macOS Mojave? No problems. Install a clean version on a virtual disk using Parallels and archive it as a template file and make another copy for running the software you want and will work on the disk. With a solid state drive (SSD), it is so fast, you would swear it is running at full speed.. Finished with using an app? No problems, delete the virtual disk and keep the clean version in readiness for the next time you need to run a software app. Incidentally, you can even prepare and have ready virtual disks of just about every OS X (and certainly all the macOS) that ever existed since and including OS X Snow Leopard. Very nice.

Too much work to prepare the disks? Send me a couple of 40GB USB flash drives and I'll copy mine onto them and send them off to you. To cover cost of postage and handling, you can donate on our page through the Contact Us link for $15.

Enjoy!
