Viveza 3 Behaviors

I’ve been a NIK user since before Google had their hands in it and recently upgraded from a previous DXO version. I had been having issues with not opening through Lr but it always worked with smart filters in Ps. Until now. I can’t get Viveza 3 to function at all as a smart smart filter, but it will on occasion work using the selective tool window, never from the file drop down window. All other NIK modules work as intended. I’ve created several user recipes within Viveza that seem to cause the stumbling, but it won’t apply and hangs at the Saving function. A restart, or full system reboot sometimes allows it. I’m almost always using a .psb file.
