Configuration of Dual Processors under Windows NT

I have a dual processor P3 833 MHz computer running in Windows NT.  I have loaded some demo extensions of ArcView 3.2 (Spatial & 3D Analyst) that when executed bring up the following error:

"This software cannot be run on a multi-processor system.  Please configure your system for single processor mode and try again"

My question is:
How do I configure my system to recognise only one processor?  I will need step by step instructions if it is anything outside of Windows (ie CMOS) as I am no IT expert.  I will also need to know if there is potential for other programs to object to such a reconfiguration.

Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated.  Question posted on 14/5/2002.

First, I suspect this behavior in a LICENSING issue with this software and NOT a technical problem.  In other words, they charge MORE for a multi-CPU license and you don't have it....

You can setup a BOOT TIME option in NT4 so boot using on ly one CPU.  See the instructions at:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q170756

and specifically the /NUMPROC= option.

Edit your BOOT.INI as deccribed in:

if you are unfamiliar with this.
