I'm looking for something like dig on windows but without installing cygwin or other compatibility layers. http://www.digwebinterface.com is nice but only works for public zones. Sometimes troubleshooting internal resolution by using things like dig's +trace option is nice.

I don't have a preference for command-line or GUI-based tools. nslookup can do a lot of things, but can be lacking.

For a command line tool, grab the latest BIND distribution from ISC, it includes a pre-compiled dig.exe that works fine from the Windows command line.
