I am using Version 6.5.16 (Build 1082).   When converting a lead to an Account, I only want an Account record created and do NOT want a Contact created but even if I follow the steps below, a contact record still gets created.

1. copied convertdefs.php from /modules/Leads/metadata to custom/modules/Leads/metadata

2. located $viewdefs['Contacts']['ConvertLead'] and changed 'required' => false

3. performed Quick Repair and Rebuild under Admin > Repair

How can I only créate an Account record and not Contact record during lead conversión.
