Yes this should be possible. You will have to change the programmer settings in the Chip -> Compiler options to call the command line programming tool for your hardware. If there is no command line programmer available then you will have to take the hex file produced by Flowcode and manually load it using your programming software.

I use Easypic5 from MikroElectronica

I have added at programmer location: C:\Program Files\Mikroelektronika\PICFLASH-mikroICD\PICFLASH.exe
with Parameter: -f"%f.hex"

I use the older picflash, i think it should probably work also with the newer Mikroprog suite.

Hope this helps.
