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,
listening on IPv4 interface TCP/IP Interface 2,
command channel listening on
couldn't open pid file 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\dns\etc\': Permission 
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?
