Default Another sideload option?

I have nothing to do with this program. I just saw this post on XBMC forum. I have downloaded it and it says it connects. But I haven't used it yet. But it may be another option for people having problems loading apps. Here is the post.

adbFire is a companion program for Android XBMC, (Gotham only). It allows you to sideload XBMC (and other apps) and push files to XBMC subdirectories without the hassle of downloading the Android SDK and other tools. Everything you need is built into adbFire.

Download here

I tested this d/l on a non-dev win7 machine, it installed and ran fine. Thanks for helping me test this.
It won't let me post a link to the download because I am a new user. This is in the Amazon Fire TV thread on XBMC forum.Sorry.

You don't need the entire SDK to sideload. Just 3 files adb.exe , AdbWinApi.dll and AdbWinUsbApi.dll. This app just has these embedded. It's not really another option, it's just another method. Ie: Different ways to skin a cat.
