I created a SharePoint Designer 2010 workflow attached to a Workflow Task List to Create Items in another list when the workflow task is completed. I have it set to run Manually, but the Ribbon Action Item for "Workflow" is disabled and also the workflow link in the Items context menu is not shown. What could I be doing wrong? This works on other lists.

First thing to check is if you published the workflow! (just saving it is not enough).

Hmm, been there done that, I've actually re-created the Workflow to no avail. I thought maybe since it is a Workflow Task list that this is not allowed, but that doesn't appear to be the case either. Also, this was a site upgraded from SP2007 and I've already had to re-create failed workflows due to the upgrade. – Bismarck Nov 2 '12 at 17:53
Strange. The only thing I can say is that there are no restrictions specific to Tasks lists. – Christophe Nov 2 '12 at 17:56
