VmWare Player disable beep

Did you try to install something like CentOS onto VmWare player and noticed that every time you are pressing a key in the wrong time you got a really annoying "beep" ? For example you start writing a file name and press TAB key to autocomplete it, but if no file is found you get a beep. I often work during the night on my pc and I really don't want to disturb everybody with all these beeps, so I want to disable it! Luckly I found this is very simple to obtain, you just need to: 1. turn off every VmWare Player virtual machine already running 2. go to "%programdata%\VMware\VMware Player" folder , on Windows7 %programdata% is "C:\ProgramData" so the full path is C:\ProgramData\VMware\VMware Player"" 3. edit (notepad) the file "config.ini" 4. find and change, or add, the line: mks.noBeep = "TRUE" 5. save the file and start the VmWare Player virtual machine, it should be silent now bye Digger
