No, the right variable would be `TeX-output-view-style', which would be
the canonical way for changing the viewer.

For Windows users it is usually easier to load tex-mik.el by putting
(require 'tex-mik)
into the init file.  This sets some options to MiKTeX-specific values.
One of them happens to be `TeX-output-view-style' which is altered to
use Yap for viewing DVI files.

If pdflatex should be used in the majority of cases, the variable
`TeX-PDF-mode' should be customized with `M-x customize-variable RET
TeX-PDF-mode RET'.

All of the above is explained in the manual as well which is accessible
with `C-h i d m auctex RET'
