Using Cisco embedded event manager, how to you automate a reply to an IoS prompt?

I'm using Cisco Embedded Event manager (on IoS v 12.4(9) ).   I want to have the IoS build a Crypto key on reload.  

event manager applet Generate-RSA
 event timer cron name _EEMinternalname0 cron-entry "2 * * * *"
 action 1.0 cli command "enable"
 action 1.1 cli command "config t"
 action 1.2 cli command "crypto key gen rsa"

When I manually type these commands, the IOS stops and asks what size modulus {512}?

It won't allow me to type "crypto key gen rsa modulus 512"

How do I put "512" in the event manager applet so that cron completes?

Many thanks.
