Thanks Stephan. I went back and looked at project properties, and sure enough I had changed the Main Entry Point for the debug process to an unrelated project. Once I cleared that, the original example script worked fine.

Can you try it again and then send us a bug report from Wing's Help 
menu, including the error log when prompted? 

That may show us what is going wrong. 

A common problem that has popped up several times lately is setting the 
Python Executable in Project Properties (or the Configure Python dialog 
in Wing 101) to a *.py file.  It should be the python.exe or python 
interpreter executable you want to use with your code.  You can set the 
main debug file from the Debug menu, Project Properties, or by right 
clicking on the file in the Project tool.
