To run the PCMark 10 Applications benchmark, you must have Microsoft Office installed on the PC under test.

The test is compatible with Microsoft Office 2013, Microsoft Office 2016, Microsoft Office 2019, Microsoft Office 2021, and Microsoft 365. The Microsoft Office installation must be registered, any first-time start-up messages should be cleared and, if required, you should sign in. If in doubt, start each Office application once and ensure they start without any prompts, then close them and proceed with the test.

The PCMark 10 Applications benchmark is compatible with Windows 10 and Windows 11.

Please note that the Applications benchmark is only available in PCMark 10 Professional Edition.
