Hi,

I'm trying to install BIND 9.3.2 on a Windows x64 system. I'm having
problems with account permissions for the 'named' user account.

The event log shows:

starting BIND 9.3.2
found 1 CPU, using 1 worker thread
loading configuration from 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\dns\etc\named.conf'
listening on IPv4 interface Loopback Interface 1, 127.0.0.1#53
listening on IPv4 interface TCP/IP Interface 2, 192.168.7.2#53
command channel listening on 127.0.0.1#53
couldn't open pid file 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\dns\etc\named.pid': Permission
denied
exiting (due to early fatal error)

Having tried various ways to give BIND 'permission' to write files and
failed I have to ask is there anyone out there using BIND on Windows x64 who
can help me get the server started please?
