When I type the following sentence,

So, the engineers use these two software.

MS Office Word wants to correct me as

this two software

Here I am referring two PC applications for example, AutoCAD and Photoshop.

Why should I use this with two ?

Thanks.

You are correct to use these for a plural. But you should change the object "software" to be plural as well (this is probably what is confusing the spell checker.) "Programs" fits most naturally there in place of software, or "software packages", or "PC applications" as you said. ("Softwares" is nonstandard and should be avoided.)

    thanks! I was also suspicious about whether "software" is the best word for purpose or not. I will change it to "programs". – muyustan Aug 1 '19 at 18:47

    Pieces of software is also fine. – Jason Bassford Aug 1 '19 at 19:39
