Preset at Performance and running Benchmark Tests only. Get a "please wait..." splash screen, window then minimizes and after a minute or so getting this message:
Workload Single init returned error message: Initializing process failed.

some other background process must be stopping 3dmark to work .. close all background programs like Antivirus, security suites, torrent client and even browsers.

no use....getting the same error again and again
closed all user processes in TM except the few necessary ones, under-clocked, run as administrator

will it work if i start windows in safe mode?
