Hello,
I use two dispay units on my Vista machine. From time to time I need to change resolutions and frequencies of both screens to different ones. Can anyone advise a script for that?

VB script can only read the resolution and cannot set it.   See this link at microsoft:

One idea is a COM built in vb.  See this EE post for details:

Here is a google post with some notes on command line utilities that can do the job

Thanks for the links. However they deal with a single display only. Will have to try to figure out how to make changes on two dispays. On the other hand, if my graphics cards are both Nvidia and I can save different resolution configurations under different profile names, is it possible to retrieve those profiles via VB script? For loading of profiles Nvidia does not provide a stand-alone utility that might be called in a script.
