The project you attached is based on the default Blank View application template rather then the Legacy Navigation template which is used in most samples (the template is specified when creating a new project using the New Tersus Project dialog).
The Blank View template includes no predefined design, therefore it appears completely blank by default. Add display elements to the View display model to populate it.
See http://www.tersus.com/#Id=3596 for more details on the differences between these templates.
