Does anyone know of any commandline switches that can be used with QuickBooks?

In particular, I am looking for a way to restore a company file without using the menu in QuickBooks.

I've searched all over the internet and not found anything at all.

after several days have passed without responses

Well, I suppose there are no such thing as commandline switches. What about a COM interface - is that possible? Maybe someone who knows for certain can say there is no such thing as commandline interaction with quickbooks? That would be an answer, after all.


So I ended up writing an autohotkey script that manipulated the alt+menu commands. Hacky, but it works.
