This is a known bug in Audacity 2.1.3 that double-clicking on a AUP file will start Audacity with an empty project.

To work around this:
a) first start Audacity, then double-click the AUP file, or
b) start Audacity then use File > Open to open the AUP project file.

This bug is fixed in the upcoming 2.2.0 release.
