When I input an incorrect password, I get this prompt.

After running the program through x64dbg and going to search for an associated string.. nothing comes up.. Can someone please help me?

I don't really know x64dbg, but are you sure the string search handles wide-char strings correctly?

When do you run the search? Are you sure the strings are available at the time?

I would recommend making a deadlisting, using whatever disassembler you're comfortable with, and having a look for the strings and xrefs to them. You tend to get a very narrow view of the logic in a debugger, and you need the wide one for this.

Edit: x64dbg apparently only searches the module currently shown in the disassembly. Open up the symbols window, clickety-click your friend's module, and try searching again. Or you could set a breakpoint on MessageBox() and see where it's called.
