Adwords Editor error message "invalid account"

I recently downloaded the newest version of Adwords Editor, but when I go to
"add" an account I get "invalid account" error. It's weird because the older version worked just fine. Would anyone have an idea of what's going on? 

 

Other discussions seem to relate to "2-step verification," which I have not done.

@AdWordsEng-Igor - any ideas? Should Brian set up two step verification?

Editor 11 should not care either way. It uses the same authentication mechanism as Google web properties. In other words, if you can log into https://adwords.google.com with this account in the browser, you should also be able to log into Editor with it.

If you still experience problems, please fill the form here:

https://support.google.com/adwords/editor/contact/awe_gen

Describe the problem, the account email you are trying to access, and the exact text of the error (or a screenshot of the same). The form also collects your contact information so we would be able to get back to you directly.
