One way to do this is to open Wing from the start menu, which always 
starts a new instance.  As for the explorer, it ought to work to create 
a shortcut for wing.exe that has the --new argument, then to select a 
.wpr file and specify the shortcut w/ --new to open it.

It could and probably should be an option.
