'[PIC]: Using MPLAB and ICD2 as a programmer only'

I was playing around last night with the notion that I
could use MPLAB and the ICD2 as a programmer
only..ie..have a remote testing site where I want them
to be able to download new updates (bootloader would
work but haven't implemented it yet) and short of them
reflashing, just send them an extra ICD2 that I have
for the time being and the hex file.  However, when I
created a project and only had the hex and cod files,
it appeared as if it said it was programming BUT the
read back was empty.  I'm sure it works, just not sure
what the settings need to be, or the correct file.  I
don't want to send the asm files and have him build
locally, too easy for something to get messed up.

No project necessary.
Open MPLAB
Configure - Select Device
Programmer - Select Programmer - ICD2
File - Import - hexfile
program away......

Thanks...got it figured out last night.  Someone
mentioned about a method (or was it a wish) to talk to
the ICD2 from the command line, to avoid using MPLAB.

Was that a wish...or is something available?

You can do that with a PM3.  So far as I know the ICD2 cannot do that.  
I'd love someone to prove me wrong.

I guess that was me. My objective is not exactly to avoid MPLAB, but to
control the programming through the command line. If MPLAB had command line
support, that would be fine with me.

That was a wish, or better, a question whether somebody knows something.

I don't know anything that would allow it with the ICD2. The only thing I
can think of is scripting MPLAB by sending keystrokes to it. Not very
elegant, and not very robust either. I really hate it when they forget to
support a few simple command line actions; that's really not much
additional work when all the rest is already there. This seems to be a
mindset thing.
