Migrating SharePoint Designer Workflow within same site or different sites

When we have developed complex workflows using SPD, we always find a way to migrate / re-import SharePoint Designer Workflows within the same site or different sites.


There is a WF Migrator tool here: http://spwflmigrator.codeplex.com/ . You should try this to see how it works.
If not, there seems to be a SPD WF migration tool for $99: http://www.elegrity.com/content/ElegritySharePointTools


Before reading the above, I would recommend reading this – where they talk about why it is not easy to port and what aspects to be considered.
http://www.endusersharepoint.com/2008/12/08/why-can%E2%80%99t-i-easily-port-sharepoint-designer-workflow-solutions-from-one-list-to-another-part-1/
This is also another blog, which describes this:

Btw, you can use this tool to get GUIDs:

Apart from all the below, you also have a product from a company called SharePoint Site Migration Manager, which can be used to copy workflow associations (refer 2nd link). – This product has a 15 days trial, so it could help if none.
