How to convert dual cpu 2003 vm to single cpu

I have a 2003 vm that was created with 2 cpu's. But I need to downgrade it to a single cpu.

How can I downgrade the os to 1 cpu.

I tried this but it didn't work:

If you are using VMWARE for managing your VMs, then use the vmware converter standalone client tool.

Generally if you just change to a single vCPU you shouldn't have any problems.  I have had to do this for several customers with no adverse affects.  If you see issues you can always change it back to 2 vCPU

So when you've removed the processor from the VM properties, what exactly happened!
