I am doing a fresh install of Sierra and Neviana's and BreBo's solutions worked for me. Here is my step by step.
First change the current system version to "16B2555"
Open Terminal and enter the following commands:
cd /System/Library/CoreServices/ sudo cp SystemVersion.plist SystemVersion.plist.orig # I prefer to backup config files before making changes sudo nano SystemVersion.plist
Install the NVidia Web Driver but DO NOT reboot
Download the Web Driver from http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/110124/en-us
From Finder run WebDriver-318.104.22.168f01.pkg.
It should run fine and I think at completion I got a warning about not supporting the current OS version. Ignore and continue but do not reboot yet.
Restore the current system version to "16B2657"
Return to Terminal and enter the following command:
sudo nano /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist
Finish the NVidia Web Driver Install
Clicking "Continue" or "Reboot" in the NVidia Web Driver Install and let the system reboot.
Upon reboot you will again be warned about not supporting the current OS version.
Update the NVDAStartupWeb.kext
In Terminal enter the following commands:
cd /System/Library/Extensions/NVDAStartupWeb.kext/Contents sudo cp Info.plist Info.plist.orig sudo nano Info.plist
Rebuild the kernel caches
In Terminal, enter the following command:
sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel
In Terminal enter the following command:
sudo kextcache -system-caches
Reboot and enable NVIDIA Web Driver
I was able to click on the NVIDIA logo on the menu bar and select "NVIDIA Web Driver". You may need to go to "System Preferences" then NVIDIA Driver Manager, "Graphics Driver" tab. Click the lock to make changes and select the "NVIDIA Web Driver".
A reboot may be required to use it.
EDIT - Added link to Web Driver, typo.
