Bind 9.9 install on Windows 2012 error

I'm migrating from a Windows 2003 Server to Windows Server 2012 and trying
to install Bind 9.9


When I download the 64bit ver, unpack it, and attempt to run
BindInstall.exe, I get the error message>

  "A referral was returned from the server"


I've tried turning off UAC and that doesn't make this error go away. 

I can't seem to get BindInstall to run no matter what.  Any ideas why this
is or what I need to turn on or off on Windows Server 2012.


I was running bind 9.3 previously on the 2003 machine and still have that in
the 32 bit flavor.  I haven't tried that yet as an alternative but it is
going backwards.

Thanks in advance,

Michael Barber
