I use the command line to start a script (VB Script) like :

C:\Program Files (x86)\Pulsonix\Pulsonix.exe -hidden -scriptfile "myscript.vbs"

I want to use the script as a "Master-Script", so I would like to start the script with arguments from the command line, for example :

...Pulsonix.exe -hidden -scriptfile "myscript.vbs -design 12345"

The script should read out the argument "design" with it's value 12345 and fill an internal variable.

Is this possible ?

At this moment, I use a workaround. I generate in realtime a .vbs script which i load to pulsonix like the command above with the design filename I need. So I don't have to generate a vbs file for each design.

I'm haven't found a way to pass the args via command line, but it is simple to overcome this using environment variables (in JavaScript):

var WshShell = new ActiveXObject("WScript.Shell");
var WshEnv = WshShell.Environment("Process");
var docname = WshEnv("PULSONIX_DOC");

Then just wrap invocation in the .bat file which sets appropriate variables from command line arguments and you're done.
