Topaz Simplify

I cannot get Topaz Simplify (just purchased) to work at all on my Mac.My OS is High Sierra 10.13, PhotoShop CC 2017, Lightroom 2017. If I run Simplify in PS I get a message that says this is a one time setup and then the setup seems to run but never stops. No presets load. Eventually I have to shut it down. If I run it inside Lightroom I get a crash with a long report to send to apple: "Process: Topaz Simplify 4 [1760]

============================
And finally, Simplify doesn’t appear to run inside Topaz Studio?

This may be an issue with High Sierra? I have a Mac using El Capitan and Simplify as well as all my other Filters/Plugins work fine in PS and Studio.
You may want to submit a ticket from inside the Studio Help Center site?

Thank-you.

This is it! Fixed. Thanks so much. What a relief. I thought I was going to have to return it which was very depressing. Appreciate the help.

It worked until I hit ok and returned to PS. AT that point the program crashed. Here’s the top of the crash report:

ok Gentlemen - It worked in all the other programs. So I rebooted. For some reason it works well in all my programs, now, including PS. Thank-you!
