In order to debug and test a custom extension it is necessary to launch a second copy of VS. This tutorial shows how Visual handles this process by using a special implementation of Visual Studio known as the Experimental Instance. Running the extension in Experimental instance is important, because extensions can significantly modify the behavior and features of Visual Studio. Isolating the changes into this separate configuration ensure that your working copy of Visual Studio is not corrupted.
