We are moving from a workgroup to a domain enviornment.
Weare running all Windows 7 Pro worksations and Enterprise Office 2010 .

after running migwiz and saving our workgroup profile , we added the computer to the domain ,Logged in as the user (to create the profile),  logged out and back in as a domain administrator and then restored the user profile.
Everything worked except that the  Office icons are blank. The file association is there, but the ikons do not show "W" for Word, "X" for excel, etc.
We only migrated the user profile and not the  (larger) shared profile.

It sounds like IconsCache.db is corrupted.  You may want to look at this TechNet thread for some suggestions:

Depending on how many workstations you have you could fix them by hand or script the solution and push it out.

turns out that I had to run MS office tools : picture manager and ran a tool to fix the problem.
This only occured on this one peticular workstation. MigWiz was flawless on all other system profiles.

Awarding points but I am not sure the  IconsCache.db  was bad.
Anyway, see my notes above..
