Okay, got it, thanks to this thread: communities.vmware.com/thread/… In addition to putting the -u and -p options immediately after the -h option, I had to remove the [-M <id>] option from the shortcut, and put the datastore path to the vmx file, like this: "[datastore] VMDir/VMFile.vmx"

I've tried putting the values in quotes, and also prefixing my username with DOMAIN\ (it is my domain login). No luck still.

BUT, it's now reporting "Login failed due to a bad username or password". I'm sure they are correct, though -- I use the same values in the login window.

Okay, looks like you have to add the -u and -p options immediately after the -h option.
