... and what does PG4UW and PG4UWMC names of the software means ?

PG4U = Programmer (PG) for (4) you (U)
PG4UW = PG4U, Windows version
(at the time, when the PG4U name of SW was created, the Windows OS didn't exist and then we had dual support DOS/WIN a while, therefore it was necessary to differ DOS/WIN SW)
PG4UWMC = PG4UW, Multiprogramming Control version

* Microsoft 64-bit operation systems doesn't allow direct access to LPT port, therefore the communication speed between PC and programmer is very low. In case of Windows x64 OS we recommend to use only USB connected programmers.
