When we creating a Workflow through Visual Studio 2010. Now when we entered the site URL we receive the following error: See in fig

So here the main solution is that when we create the workflow first we need to create the Workflow Tasks and Workflow History List. By default Team site Template inbuilt the both lists. But when we use the blank site template for creating the Site we need to create the both lists. For creating both lists we have the following option:

1. Create both lists from SharePoint OOB features.

2. Create both lists programmatically.

3. Create both lists using PowerShell.
