Google tells me that it's a free viewer for analysis results...
here's a blog on the Siemens site in ref:
Wolfgang, you find the answer in these links.
Sorry for coming in late to this thread - I somewhat recently got access and haven't had the chance to fully explore this resource. I'm the Product Manager for STAR-View+. Please let me know if you have any more questions, thanks!

Sorry, I'm a bit lazy today and didn't hit all the hyperlinks above, But isn't STAR-View+ a product out of the CD-Adapco product line? That might explain why most of the Siemens VARs haven't heard of this..it's a product from a different sales channel.
Ryan, exactly right. STAR-CCM+ is the flagship multi-purpose CFD code. From STAR-CCM+ you can export scene content to a file format that STAR-View+ can read. STAR-View+ is the free standalone viewer, paired with STAR-CCM+. In short, make an illustration of your results in STAR-CCM+ and share the exported scene file with a colleague so they can interactively review it, and animate content using the free standalone viewer.
Please check out the attached animation of STAR-View+ in action.
