Actually it can be done in Windows.
Just as in linux you need to enter the command in
I have tested it using both Windows Media Player and the 64bit Windows
port of VLC.
Windows Media Player command (quotations need to be used)
"x:\path\to\exe\file" "x:\path\to\sound\file" (all in 1 line)
for your file
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe" "C:\Users\Emily\Downloads\Purr.wav"
the issue with using WMP it that it no longer has a command line option
to close it so you would either have leave it open (minimized) or
manually close it.
VLC (again quotations need to be used)
for your file
"N:\Music\Jimi_Hendrix-Experience_Hendrix\01 - Purple Haze.mp3"
The downside to vlc is that it can refuse to play some files
The upside it can be closed from the command line.
I figure wordwrap is going to play hell with the commands so I have
attached those that I used on my system.
Have any problems just holler.
Windows 8.1 for x86_64
