What is the best method for upgrading from Tridion 2011 to Tridion 2013 with items in workflow? If possible, I would like to not have to install the legacy packs or release the current workflow items. Any ideas?
After upgrading from Tridion 2011 to Tridion 2013 SP1, we found that even without installing the legacy pack that the items in workflow prior to the upgrade can still be finished. If you elect to pull your items out of workflow to put them in the new 2013 workflow, you can simply "Force Finish Process." When you access one of these 2011 workflow items, you will get an alert about VBScript not being found.
