To associate a workflow template to a list or document library, use the AddWorkflowAssociation method of the SPList object. To associate a workflow with a content type, use the AddWorkflowAssociation method of the SPContentType object. Both of these methods take an SPWorkflowAssociation object and add it to the specified list or content type, respectively. To create the appropriate workflow association, use the CreateListAssociation, CreateListContentTypeAssociation, or CreateSiteContentTypeAssociation method of the SPWorkflowAssociation object itself.
