How does one open more than one project using Win8

I have a friend using Vegas Pro 13 on a machine that has Windows 8 installed and he says that he is unable to open 2 projects at the same time. What he wants to do is open an existing project and copy titles clips from that project into a new project. How does one do that using Windows 8? Apparently, he can't open more than one project at a time.

Vegas works with one project at a time, to open several projects you need several vegases running.
If you have Vegas running, right click on its icon/panel in taskbar, then select Sony Vegas... from menu to start another copy.

Are you saying project nesting doesn't work?
Or that one can't open two instances of Vegas?

I am using Win 8.1 (and previously 8.0) and can open two instances of Vegas 13. I can also nest at least 3 layers deep. (haven't tried deeper.)
