Remotely start VLC w/Salt Stack

view full story

http://superuser.com – Using Salt Stack, how does one remotely start a Windows program on the console screen? In other words, from my Salt Master (CentOS based), I want to push this sort of command to Windows 7 (with Salt Minion) and have VLC automatically start. e.g. from *nix shell salt 'Win7-laptop' cmd.run '""C:\Program Files (x86)\videolan\vlc.exe"' Is there a certain command or switch that I must run? Or do I need to use something like psexec or Powershell? (HowTos)
