After some days of troubleshooting with WEM and Start Menu has I found 2 problem and solution other also maybe need.
Problem 1: Start Menu icons missing for user:
Users may see blank tiles/icons in the Start Menu or the Start Menu corrupted in their published desktops when User Profile Management shipped with VDA 7.15 LTSR CU1/CU2/7.16/7.17 is enabled for user profile roaming.
This missing icons issue happens with second or subsequent logins, and may occur intermittently. The issue is not observed with VDA 7.15.
