I would like to open an Access Database as not visible. But I need it to work in a Windows shortcut with a switch like:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\MSACCESS.EXE" "D:\MyDbToOpen.accdb / TheSwitch "
This database just execute code and close after it and I don't what to see any screen.
I know how to do it by vbscript, but for this particular use I need it to be in a Windows shortcut.

I need something that do not involve the anti-virus protection like a vbscript etc...
