Is there a way to limit total programming counts on pickit3?

I want to program my boards on the field using pickit 3 programmer to go function(or may be pickit 4 which I did not try yet). I sometimes require it to give somebody else for some purpose. In that case I want to limit its usage to a certain number of programmings. For example it should allow 10 boards to program and not beyond it. Is there a way to do it? Thanks.

If you want to do this because you're afraid that they may steal your firmware, one programming is enough to do this.

No I don't fear of stealing. More like I want to know howmany time the program is used which will be reported literally but as a safeguard to limit it to a value to make certain it will return to me ultimately.

Since no one said Yes, then the Answer may be no.  I know there are other 3rd party ones that do limit the number of writes.
If you concern is getting it back go with the core charge.  Return it in 30 days or you will be charged.  Or Pay first and refund on return.

Hi Seyyah,
Maybe, through Pk3/pk4 we can't control the programming count but we can control through PM3. In PM3 using SQTP we can control the programming count.
