Team Viewer Authentication Password

I am trying to connect to my work computer which is up and running. When i click on the icon to open teamviewer. I receive a message that states that. The password you have entered is invaild, please try again. Which password is Teamviewer looking for? I have never had to enter a password twice. I have tried using the same password that i use to log in and it still doesn't work. 

Thank you.
