I would like to set the columns for a given folder in Windows XP Explorer (details view) programmatically using Visual Basic Script. I want to set which columns have to be displayed. I also want to set the column order and the width of each column (i.e. "name": 150 px, "size": 100 px, "comment": 200 px, "author": 200 px). The setting has to be done using Visual Basic Script (VBS) as I want to set it within a login script. Any ideas?
Thanks.
Chris
