Turn off beep of VM image

The VMware Knowledge Base web site provides a solution to turn off the PC speaker for all virtual machines. You can just add
    mks.noBeep = "TRUE"
to the global configuration file config.ini.

On Windows 7, the configuration file is located at C:\ProgramData\VMWare\VMware_Product\config.ini.

However, a non administrator user cannot modify that file. Doing that will result in an "Access is denied" error. For a regular user, you have to change each vm image individually. Open the ???.vmx file with a text editor and add the above fix:
    mks.noBeep = "TRUE"

Before you make any manual changes to the ???.vmx file, remember to make a backup of it.
