I am moving a client's information using WET from an old laptop to a new laptop which has Windows Pro 64 and will be placed on a domain at their business.

I would like to move the information while at my office, but will this cause a problem when i go to place the new system on the domain at their office ? Will it create a new user under the domain and I will no longer have the user information and I transferred here at my office?

Yes it will create a new user if the username already exists i.e.
in c:\users\john doe
if the domain username is john doe it will create
c:\users\john doe.domainname

When you run the WET utility on the destination machine, you can map user accounts. So, even if source profile name and destination profile name are different you can still transfer to it.

Sorry, I don't have a source for that.  Just something I noticed the other day when I was using the utility.
