The password that you have to input on the helper tool is your system password. Try changing your system password and seeing whether you are able to use the tool with the new password then.

 

If the issue persists, do you get any specific error messages?

@lyndsy123 That should be the same password that you use to log in to your computer.

The user account password for your Mac. You must have a user account with Administrator rights to install the helper tool.
