To list extended Properties of files inside folder, use below script.

Save script in any localtion, i;e C:\Script.vbs, run below command

C:\>cscript //nologo script.vbs > report.csv

In addition, depending on the OS version, the properties are in different order and there may be many more.  Win XP has 33 standard items, but Win 7 has 286 and the order of some of them differ between the two OSs.
