Have your customer download the BIND binary package for Windows and  
use nsupdate. There is no need to run the installer, which will  
install the BIND name server; just copy the nsupdate.exe command,  
maybe the dig.exe command, and any necessary DLL's (possibly all of  
the DLL's in the package) to a directory. He can then use the command  
line utility from there.

If there is a GUI utility, I don't know of it. Maybe someone else does.
