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?
