MDT2009 Where is "discard back faces"?

I have a surface model with half of the surfaces shown on one side the rest on the other.
I'm looking for Options> System> Properties Geometry> Discard back faces. It is not there.
Is it hiding somewhere else or there's an other command somewhere for showing both sides of surfaces?
Thanks

I'm still missing something. Uncheckig "discard back faces'" did not have any effect. (See attached).
I've also tried on PC (Windows XP Pro 32 bit, Nvidia Quadro FX 1100) with the same negativ result.
Graphics card on M6400 is Quadro FX3700 M.
Tried both D3D and Open GL settings.
Thanks

Works here... xp64 SP2 8GB GeForce 9800 GT on Direct X.


Might be the Win7 / Graphics combo.

2009 not supported on Win7 so nobody at Autodesk is looking at this issue.
