This requires only C2 and the example projects.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open C2
2. On the Start Page, click on Browse Examples
3. Double click on an example project
4. Notice that a new instance of C2 has launched with the selected example project.
5. The above steps may be repeated; a new C2 instance launches each time
Selected project opens in the current instance of C2.
I understand now that "Browse Examples" just opens Windows Explorer to the examples directory but that was not obvious at first. The same icon is used for both "Open Project" and "Browse Examples", however, "Open Project" brings up the file open dialog while "Browse Examples" opens Windows Explorer.
Since a file may be selected in both a dialog and explorer by double-clicking I didn't realize at first that I wasn't getting a file open dialog via "Browse Examples".
It is perhaps not sufficient to rely on the user's understanding of the difference between "browse" and "open" when both commands are associated with the same icon. I suggest that the "browse examples" instead present the user with a file open dialog already set to the examples directory. This would allow a user to try out multiple examples without having to close an instance of C2 for each.
