Windows - Different Wallpapers for Dual Monitors

I have a Windows computer setup with dual monitor functionality. There is a project I'm working on which requires different wallpapers to be shown on each monitor. I tried finding out if there is any Windows registry key or .dll entry that I can call from my program. But I failed without being able to find any possible solution.Is there anything you know that can be used as a workaround for this problem?

Thank you

Which version of Windows? XP handles multiple monitors differently from Vista and 7.

There are some commercial solutions that do this, and also provide other capabilities. Google for windows multiple monitor manager
