Workflow does not start when item is modified by an event receiver

A list item is changed via an Event Receiver. In the history list of that item I see the Change and a new Version is created.

My workflow Option "Start when items are modified" = "YES", nevertheless the workflow did not start.

What is the reason and how can I start a workflow in this case?

Do you know what account made the change? Was it the System Account?

Hi,

When I look in the history it seems the Event Receiver is triggered by the current user or the workflow user.

The SPItemEventReceiver class has an EventFiringEnabled property. If the event receiver sets this property to false, it may prevent workflows from starting on update.
