All "command line" input is stored in the command$ variable.  To work with it I usally but something in the form_load() sub, like

private sub form_load()
 if lcase($command) = "autostart" then
   call cmdStart_click
 endif
endsub

The nice thing about command$ is that it can be given either from the DOS box or from another program's shell() function.  Example:

private sub cmdStartOtherProgram_click()
 shell("c:\compiled_projects\other_project.exe autostart")
endsub
