How is anyone here supposed to know why some SecureW2_JoinNow.run fails?
I found a version of it, it has a bunch a python scripts inside and the error message "Could not continue with credentials collection." is used somewhere™, but "Verification successful" isn't there.

There's an "# Work-around for python 2.x getpass() not able to handle utf-8 encoding" so I guess it requires to run python2 ?
