I need to programmatically extend the desktop and set resolution of 2nd monitor? I need to do this on 1000 to 1500 computers.

The preferred method is Powershell v2.0, but any scripting language would be acceptable.

I've done some research on this but haven't found an actual way to do it with windows 7.

Hardware: All-in-one PC, with 2nd 17 inch monitor
OS: Windows 7 32-bit
Resolution: 1024x768
