How do I open/run a specific file on my computer?

Hi all, I can't find this anywhere, so here goes:
I would like to make a shortcut/button to run a specific file on my computer (a .wmp playlist) using the Windows Media Player (default player). Preferably I would like this command to be accessible from Tasker, so I can tell my phone "play my shows" and it starts that playlist on my pc.
Does this require some sort of custom remote? I'm no champ with coding sadly ;)
Would be a wonderful feature to have anyways in UR to have a File Manager remote with a remote action to run a specific path on a server.
Hopefully one of you UR wizards can help me with this!
You can use the Tasker plugin to create a task that opens your playlist. Check out this tutorial:
When you get to the Action Wizard in step 6 select Remote Action>Os>Open, and then enter the path to the playlist file . You should then have a task to open that specific file.
