K8055 Board Programmable?

I have a Velleman K8055 board I am using in a homemade security system. I also have a Visual Basic program on my computer I am using to control the board. Unfortunately, the computer must be connected to the board to run the program. For obvious reasons this is ineffective. I want to actually use my computer sometimes. I was wondering if it is at all possible to program the PIC on the board with my program.

Sorry, the K8055 doesn’t run as a ‘stand alone’ microcontroller board.
You may replace the PIC and program it with Microchip programmer or with Velleman EDU10 programmer.

Thank you for your time. I’m sure one of the things you suggested will work!
