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:
