Copy profile error Windows 7

I am removing a Win7 machine from a domain and trying to copy the domain profile to a local one.  I used Windows Enabler to enable the "copy to..." button under advanced user settings.  However, when I click that button, I get "Profile error: no mapping between account names and security IDs was done."

Is there a fix for this??
Thanks

I suggest you try logging into the machine while still on domain profile, but as LOCAL ADMIN user, like this:

Username: .\Administrator (it is "dot" "backslash" "Administrator", this means, LOCAL logon, not domain)
Password: admin_password

When logged in, try to access the desired user's folders under C:\Users\desired_user\
If you can do it, you will be able to copy profile later:
- either manually, AS ADMINISTRATOR, copy files from C:\Users\old profile to C:\Users\new profile
- or using a tool, for example TransWiz http://www.forensit.com/downloads.html

I rather would use User Profile Wizard from that same page. I've moved profiles from local to domain and domain to domain with ease and no issues at all with it.

I'm convinced that using the proper tool (Profile Wizard) for copying or moving a profile will get rid of that error.

I'm not sure how to square my experience ( "Profile error: no mapping between account names and security IDs was done.") with Qlemo being convinced that using the wizard will get rid of the error.  However...  for me the issue is now moot as I recreated the profile instead of resolving the error, as I had no time for the latter.  Thanks anyway.
