Virtual Box login incorrect

I just finished installing virtual box on my local machine and when i try to log in for the first time, I keep getting error that login is incorrect even though i’m entering the correct info listed on website. I followed the virtual set for windows exactly but i think a step was skipped because I can’t log in. Please advise. Thanks

Hi @excellence2077 ,
What was the login credentials you were using? and what was the method trying to login? SSH or UI.

I had the same issue and the credentials you said solved it.
