Configuring Dpcker wptagent to work with Charles Proxy (OSX & Win2012 VM)

RE: Configuring Dpcker wptagent to work with Charles Proxy (OSX)
I'm now running Charles Proxy on the Windows 2012 VM instead.

The chrome entry in wptdriver.ini is as follows:

exe="C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe"
options='--load-extension="%WPTDIR%\extension" --user-data-dir="%PROFILE%"'

Note: I have tried both with and without double-quotes around the --proxy-pac-url value, and both double and triple slashes after the URI 'file:' protocol
and config.pac is:

function FindProxyForURL(url, host) {
  if ((host == "localhost") ||
      (shExpMatch(host, "localhost.*")) ||
      (host == "")) {
    return "DIRECT";

  return "HTTP";

Charles is indeed running on port 8888

When I dispatch a test, I can see it arrive in the agent, and the the wptdriver window says:

Launching: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrom SxS\Application\chrome.exe" --load-extension="C:\webpagetest\extension" --user-data-dir="C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Roaming\webpagetest_profiles\Chrome" --proxy-pac-url-=file:///C:/webpagetest/config.pac

Followed by a bunch of command line options disabling various features (I'll include them at the end incase they are relevant)

Chrome never launches, and in due course the server says "Timed out waiting for the browser to start."

(I've also tried with Firefox, but FF crashes instantly when opened, and for some reason IE doesn't show up as an option in the private instance interface.)

Chrome command line options shown when the work request is received:
--disable-background-networking --no-default-browser-check --no-first-run --process-per-tab --new-window --silent-debugger-extension-api --disable-infobars --disable-translate --disable--notifications --disable-desktop-notifications --allow-running-insecure-content --disable-save-password-bubble --disable-component-update --disable-background-downloads --disable-add-to-shelf -- disable-client-side-phishing-detection --disable-data-saver-prompt --disable-default-apps --disable-domain-reliability --safebrowsing-disable-auto-update --disable-background-timer-throttle

There may be more but that's as far as I've been able to stretch the virtual display of the VM!
