Our product is somewhat similar. We pretty much show one example and use the
text to explain that they may not see anything even remotely similar to what
the example shows. However (we make database query/reporting tools) we do
ship a sample database and use that in our docs. If people really want to
DO the examples, it is possible to get pretty darned close to pretty much
every screen we show in the manuals.

Nice vague answer, huh?
