[Sorry for n00b question but my vmware player keeps auto-repeating characters without a command to do so and I am lost as to how to put a line at the end of vmx file, I failed at my first two attempts, please help!!
Here is instructions from vmware....
Repeated characters when typing in remote console
When typing into a remote console, you see unintended repeated keystrokes.
If you are using a wide-area or low-bandwidth connection, the time delay over the network may be long enough to cause the virtual machine to start auto-repeat.
To reduce these effects, increase the time threshold necessary for auto-repeat in the remote console.
Power off the virtual machine.
[u][b] Add a line, similar to this, at the end of your virtual machine's configuration (.vmx) file[/b][/u]:
keyboard.typematicMinDelay = "2000000"
The VMX file is a text file so just use your favorite text editor - notepad for example -
