Second monitor wallpaper question

Hi all,

I have bought an extra monitor to connect to my Vaio and was wondering if it is possible to have 2 different wallpapers on each screen without having to install software (like ultramon)?

You will need to use some kind of software to do that Windows 7 by itself will not.
