Once you install & run it, open your EMF file with it & do this from the Menu:

- Image -> Convert to Grayscale
- File -> Save As, and give the file a new name

doing this, seems you lose the vectors and you save it as a BITMAP !
Is there a way of converiting vectors to GRAEYSCALE vectors ?

Could try xnview

Don't know if that will retain the vector format.

But this one Metafile will (or should)

Costs money though but there's an evaluation version

Irfanview can save to many different formats, including EMF (Enhanced Windows Metafile)
Bitmap is the default, but click the down arrow beside the "Save as type" box to bring up a drop-box of a list of formats.
