Is there a reason you can't specify the project on the command line?  If
that is done, then it'll open with that project.

Also, there is a pref to disable opening more recent project so Wing
always starts with the default project.  This is the Files / Projects /
Auto-reopen Last Project pref.  That may be the easiest way to go and
then use the recent list in the Project menu or click on the project
name in the Project view to switch to the desired project.
