serious trouble using the Apollon-all-in-one-installer

i downloaded the installer and double clicked it, i got to the point where it asks my root password,
i gave it and tried to continue with the prosess when it announced that my password was incorrect and i should try again,
i tryed again a couple of times but with same results,
password isn't correct.
what is the problem?

it should be installable using any login (don't need to be on root account)

try logging in as root first and then running the installer from the root account.

Dot bother, you have to be in a non-root account.

Can you login as root from a terminal from the current account?
