Missing Workflows after Migration

If you find the default OOTB workflows missing after migration from SharePoint 2007 to Sharepoint 2010, the following steps may help restore them:

1) Open the root of the site collection in SharePoint Designer 2010

2) In the Navigation section, click on All Files, then click _catlogs

3) Check for a folder named "wfpub" and if it exists right click on it and delete it

4) Run the following PowerShell for the site collection having the issue:

$site = Get-SPSite http://root-site-collection-url

Disable-SPFeature -url $site.URL -Identity Workflows -Confirm:$false

Disable-SPFeature -url $site.URL -Identity OffWFCommon -Confirm:$false

Enable-SPFeature -url $site.URL -Identity OffWFCommon

Enable-SPFeature -url $site.URL -Identity Workflows

    This did the trick on my site after we upgraded form WSS 3.0 to SharePoint 2010 Enterprise.  I tried lots of other solutions found online such as deactivating and reactivating the site colleciton workflows.  This solution worked perfecly and quickly.  Thanks!!!!!
