Course does not launch designer studio

I am in lesson 4 learning about Adding alternate stages to the case life cycle. In previous lessons, the course uses Pega Express. Suddenly, the course wants to use designer studio. I am not able to complete the assignment activity.

Exercise: Adding alternate stages to the case life cycle


TGB's business policies indicate all expense reimbursement requests are routed to the appropriate reviewers for approval, and then goes to the accounting office for payment processing. If a request for expense reimbursement is rejected by the department manager or the director, the employee must be provided an opportunity to reconcile the request. Additionally, if any expense items are billable to a customer, or the expense items meet certain criteria, the request for expense reimbursement must be audited.

The table below provides the credentials you need to complete the exercise.
