Apply folder views and templates to specific folders

I am trying to set explorer so that only folders with the template music have list view and templates of pictures have large icons view. Whenever I try to apply a template and view to a folder is just switches right back to general. I do not want one view for all folders.

Have you tried any of those .reg files in the tutorials that reset Explorer templates to the system defaults? Maybe if you start from square one it might react differently.
