Script to auto enter


Hey guys, since I play around with VMs a lot I install the vmware tools a fair bit as a result. The install process is quite easy and simply requires me to hit enter until it's done.

My question is, is there a way to send an auto enter? Now, I realize you can send a "yes" but some of the questions require "no" (which is the default answer that I wish to use").

Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you

no need, just use the -d option for the install script.
