PICkit3 Standalone Programming Software

Does anyone here have any experience with the PICkit3 Standalone Programming Software?
The reason why I ask is that I developed a little project that has received some interest from a few people who have electronics experience but have no PIC experience. I think it would be far easier for them to use the standalone programming software than try to install MPLAB, go through the rather involved procedure of setting up a project just to download a hex file into the PIC.

This would likely be a no brainer except that the standalone programming software doesn't appear to be supported any longer. Last update was version 3.10 in 2013. So I'm not sure if this is such a good idea. The PIC used in my project is a 16F684 which is listed as being supported in the this software.

Just download it and see if it does what you want. Most likely it will. The 16F684 is over 10 years old, so it should be supported ok.

I would if I had a Windows PC to use it with. Unfortunately I don't have one handy.
