No Mikroc Pro is for the low-end 8-bit PICs. They are a world away from the PIC32 which is a completely different technology - as different as a Raspberry Pi is from an Arduino UNO.

Oh - they do a PIC32 version now? Ok...

Then yes, you can program the raw chip with it as you can with any PIC32 - there is an ICSP header on the board for you to attach a programmer to.

If you want to use the bootloader on the MAX32 then you're very much on your own - you would have to ask around on the MikroElektronika forums how you would set their compiler up to use the right exception addresses etc to be able to sit along-side the bootloader. For our compiler we have specially crafted linker scripts. Who knows what MikroE use...
