The following is an example line to run in CMD to test script. I had 3 workbooks to test. One xlsx without a macro, one xlam and one xlsm. The VBScript can take three arguments max, "Spreadsheet" & "Macro"  & (Optional) "Spreadsheet/Add-In with Macro".

"C:\Temp\runmacro.vbs" "C:\Temp\Book1.xlsx" "Hello" "%AppData%\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART\Book1.xlam"
"C:\Temp\runmacro.vbs" "C:\Temp\Book1.xlam" "Hello"

VBS Script:

Set args = Wscript.Arguments

ws = WScript.Arguments.Item(0)
macro = WScript.Arguments.Item(1)
If wscript.arguments.count > 2 Then
 macrowb = WScript.Arguments.Item(2)
End If


Sub LaunchMacro() 
  Dim xl
  Dim xlBook  

  Set xl = CreateObject("Excel.application")
  Set xlBook = xl.Workbooks.Open(ws, 0, True)
  If wscript.arguments.count > 2 Then
   Set macrowb = xl.Workbooks.Open(macrowb, 0, True)
  End If
  'xl.Application.Visible = True ' Show Excel Window macro
  'xl.DisplayAlerts = False  ' suppress prompts and alert messages while a macro is running
  'xlBook.saved = True ' suppresses the Save Changes prompt when you close a workbook

End Sub
