What is DMIView Ver.?

DMIView is part of the GIGABYTE DMI Viewer utility which provides a management tool for viewing motherboard hardware information.


DMIView Ver.1.5 B12.0314.1 is a software program developed by GIGABYTE. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named DMIInfoW.exe. The setup package generally installs about 64 files and is usually about 85.01 MB (89,143,074 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 10. While about 41% of users of DMIView Ver. come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and United Kingdom.
