To Install dig and host on a Windows ComputerThe dig and host utilities are available for Windows computers. This guide assumes you’re running a 64-bit version of Windows. If you’re running a 32-bit system, the procedures are similar, but not the same.
Download the BIND package from www.isc.org/downloads. As of this writing, the recommended package is 9.10.2. Download the 64-bit version for Windows.
The download is a .zip file. Open the .zip file and copy the following files to %SystemRoot%\System32\ (copying files into %SystemRoot%\System32\ requires admin privileges):
The 64-bit version also requires the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable package, which is available at http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30679#. Download it and install it before continuing.
Once you’ve installed the Visual C++ Redistributable package and copied the above files into System32, you can run dig and host from a command prompt. In the following screen capture, I ran a dig query in Windows Powershell.
