Wire frame not showing up

Have issue with install of WIP , the wire frame ( line work ) is not showing up in any of my viewports.
If I turn on shaded view however, the objects are present and I can select objects as well. Just don’t show up in wireframe after drawing.
any thoughts ?

What kind of objects are these? Meshes or NURBS?
Check your display options and make sure that the necessary elements are turned on.

i attached a screen shot, showing what I think are all the options turned on.
i also uploaded a zip file, it has a screencast video in it ( it is an .avi and should run with VLC player or windows player ) to show what is going on. Basically I draw a rectangle or curve or surface and after it is drawn, it right away dissapears. I can select it, to see the outline or I can select all of it … but then I see only the gimbal pointer. I just installed the WIP , have not done anything with it, didn’t customize anything… but have not see this behavior before. I checked with my Rhino 5 program and that one works just fine.

Hi Marcel - one thing that jumps out is the old driver - I’d check the NVidia website for the latest and see if installing that is helpful…
