Quickpost: dig On Windows

Filed under: Quickpost — Didier Stevens @ 12:40

I found out there’s a dig command for Windows.

I group small tools like this inside a bin folder. But dig relies on a set of DLLs, that should also be in the PATH, so I put them in the same bin folder.

These are the DLLs dig.exe needs:

  • libbind9.dll
  • libcrypto-1_1-x64.dll
  • libdns.dll
  • libirs.dll
  • libisc.dll
  • libisccfg.dll
  • libuv.dll
  • libxml2.dll

I used procmon on my Win10 machine to figure out which DLLs are needed, as you get no error message (there’s probably a registry setting for that).

I do have a Windows 7 VM, that I can also use to figure out which DLLs are missing because it displays an error message:

And you might also need to install the Visual C redistribuable that is included with the downloaded ZIP:

And now I can run dig from my bin folder:
