What are Windows DCH Drivers?

    Windows DCH Drivers are driver packages that will install and run on Universal Windows Platform (UWP) based editions of Windows 10. Intel offers DCH drivers for Intel Graphics since November, 28th 2018, when the first version of Windows DCH Drivers was released.

    Universal Windows drivers enable developers to create a single driver package that runs across multiple device types, from embedded systems to tablets to desktop PCs.

    A Universal Windows driver package contains an INF file and binaries that install and run on Universal Windows Platform (UWP) - based editions of Windows 10. They also install and run on other editions of Windows 10 that share a common set of interfaces.

    The driver binary can use KMDF, UMDF 2, or the Windows Driver Model (WDM).
    A universal driver consists of the following parts:
    - A base driver,
    - Optional component packages,
    - An optional hardware support app.


    Note: DCH drivers cannot be installed over a standard system, and Standard drivers cannot be installed over a DCH system.
