/Command (devenv.exe) 

Executes the specified command after launching the Visual Studio integrated development environment (IDE).


devenv /command CommandName

CommandName

Required. The complete name of a Visual Studio command or its alias, enclosed in double quotation marks. For more information about command and alias syntax, see Visual Studio Commands.

After startup is complete, the IDE executes the named command. If you use this switch, the IDE does not display the Visual Studio Start Page on startup.

If an add-in exposes a command, you can use this switch to launch the add-in from the command line. For more information, see How to: Control Add-ins with the Add-In Manager.

This example launches Visual Studio and automatically runs the macro Open Favorite Files.

devenv /command "Macros.MyMacros.Module1.OpenFavoriteFiles"
