When you launch Talend Studio for the first time, no project names are displayed on the Project list. First you need to create a project or import a local or Demo project in order to populate the Project list with the corresponding project names that you can then open in the Studio.
To open a local project in Talend Studio:
On the Studio login screen, select the connection to the local repository that holds your project from the connection list, select the project of interest from the project list and click Finish.
A progress bar appears. Wait until the task is complete and the Talend Studio main window opens.
When you open a project imported from a previous version of the Studio, an information window pops up to list a short description of the successful migration tasks.
