Host Applications

A host application installs and runs Intel® Dynamic Application Loader (Intel® DAL) trusted applications on the internal platform firmware. Host applications can be developed in the basic host application template created by the Intel DAL project wizard or in the IDE of your choice, provided you adhere to the basic host application requirements of Intel DAL host applications. Intel DAL supports host application development in C++, C# and .NET*.
One host application can communicate with multiple trusted applications.
Host applications are debugged in the program they are developed in, e.g., Microsoft Visual Studio*, using standard code debugging procedures. When we discuss debugging in the SDK in Intel DAL, we refer to debugging a trusted application via the host application.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
