What is Intel Viiv Software?

Intel's Viiv is a platform designed by Intel which is a collection of computer technologies that support a media PC concept. It includes a set of system guidelines for manufacturers which ensure that one's system is of a particular ratified standard.


The most common release is 1.6.429.0, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. 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. The primary executable is named inteldh.exe. The setup package generally installs about 47 files and is usually about 1.21 MB (1,271,696 bytes).
