I'm using Genymotion as Android emulator, but would like to be able to start a virtual device from the command line or with a Windows shortcut, instead of the Genymotion window.

Because Genymotion uses Oracle VirtualBox, I can start the virtual machine from explorer, but then it doesn't use the special interface of Genymotion.

Is it possible to start a Genymotion-device without starting the Genymotion GUI first?

You can find a solution here on Stack Overflow.

The command line you need to launch is:

player --vm-name <VM id | VM name>

The VMs id and name can be found from command line using this code:

VBoxManage list vms

It displays a list of your Virtual Box machines on this format: name {id}.
