Get error message while following demo video 3 - Task Creation


I've duplicated the problem on 2 separate dev servers, 1 is a x64 moss and the other is an x86 moss install. I follow the Task creation video without any issues up until the point i try to edit my task after the workflow has been initiated on a list item. I get the error " The control with ID 'FormPlaceHolder' requires content". I have watched the video over and over and can't find anything that i have incorrectly done to cause this issue. I can view the task, but i just can't edit the task. The feature is correctly installed, the path is being referenced in the _layouts/WSS3Workflow/TaskFormHost.aspx as it should. I've uploaded the project, can you help me out and let me know what the heck i'm doing wrong?
Also, i really just want to create tasks from custom content types, when will the next demo video come out concerning the topic of task creation from custom content types? Thanks...i really like this product...prob will save me years off my life with workflow dev... =)

I know this doesn't belong in the Issue Tracker section, but i wanted to upload the project solution in case anyone wanted to help debug for me. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

Sorry it took so long, I just noticed this entry. I'd suggest you take a look at the demo and compare the format of the task form metadata in your code with the demo code. The error you're getting is caused when the metadata defined in the workflow.xml file doesn't match what is needed.

I had the same problem, and i solved, there is a mistake in the video, the workflow.xml should be this way:
In the video the tag is:
<Task_0FormUrl> and this is the bug!!
