Here is an article covering methods to do this. Generally I have found the most convenient way to deploy designer based workflows is just to use designer to deploy them (you don't need it installed on the production server). The basic methodology is

  1. Creat the VS Workflow Project
  2. Copy the .xoml and .rules files into the VS project.
  3. Deploy and debug the workflow.

I think it is not good to install VS on production environment. stackoverflow.com/questions/275037/… –  Mark Jan 22 at 9:33
I agree. That's why I said you don't need to install it on the server. –  Robert Kaucher Jan 22 at 13:16
