declarative workflow does not start automatically for new item or item changed

See this

If you create a workflow to start automatically on creation of a new item or a change in the item – it may not start if the following conditions are true:

  1. The Windows SharePoint Services Web application runs under a user’s domain account.
  2. The user logs in by using this domain account.
  3. The site displays the user name as System Account.

A change to the service accounts is required – or you need to login as another user.

Typically you will face this in your individual development environment as you are most likely using one account for everything.
