Using HTTP POST requires that you use a form and, therefore, use a HtmlInputFile Control. Obviously this isn't what you want to do.

The only solution is to write an ActiveX Control/WinForm that you embed into your page and which locates the file and then sends it to the web server.

I suggest posting a question on a WinForm/ActiveX forum.

Also, this article in MSDN website should help.
