Where is download of a separate stand-alone Harmony-3 executable?

Harmony main page states that Harmony-3
"Available as a plug-in that directly integrates with MPLAB X IDE and as a separate Java executable for stand-alone use"
But I can't find a link to stand-alone version. Git pages also do not show link to this download. Does it exist?

I didn't know it could be stand alone.
If you are going to use Harmony then its usually as part of MPLAB X.
Harmony creates the code and MPLAB X XC compiler compiles it.

The quote I provided about stand-alone Harmony 3 is taken from the Harmony main page
 https://www.microchip.com/mplab/mplab-harmony
and also
https://microchip-mplab-harmony.github.io/
if it is true such version exists and could be run with JVM, then
I want to run stand-alone version to verify if the problem of failing DB generation will be repeated there or is it only showing in MPLAB...

I didn't know either until yesterday.
 
Go to your harmony 3 installation folder. Inside the MHC folder there are a bunch of JAR files.
 
harmony downloader is (obviously) the downloader. Huge time saver.
Hugely embarassing that this software takes 250MB or ram while doing nothing
 
runmhc.bat will launch mhc.jar with the correct parameters to run it standalone.
Another time saver as it will run on a different thread than MPLAB X (which is still single thread).
 
Enjoy :)

Thank you JPortini, indeed runmhc.bat launched configurator and I opened "harmony.prj" and got all the configuration screens for the same project which failed in MPLAB ( Java threw exception and *.jar object failed to be created) .
Apparently the problem is within MPLAB environment only.
Thanks again - this is useful to know.
