ARA2: SpectraLayers in Sound Forge 13 Pro ?

Is anyone able to get SpectraLayers to work as an ARA2 plugin inside of Sound Forge 13 Pro? I'm using the latest versions of both.

Inside of Sound Forge, SpectraLayers is unusable. The mouse cursor has a ~5 second delay.

Melodyne as an ARA2 plugin works as expected. Also, SpectraLayers as an ARA2 plugin inside of Cakewalk by Bandlab works as expected. Thanks.

On the Sound Forge Pro 13 Suite Product Page, it states "The ARA plugin integrates Steinberg SpectraLayers Pro 6 directly into SOUND FORGE Pro 13. Once installed, Steinberg SpectraLayers Pro 6 behaves like a native part of the DAW and integrates essential parts of the host DAW - like track colors and much more."

This does not work as advertised. SpectraLayers does not work in Sound Forge Pro 13 as an ARA2 plugin.

I have performed 3 clean installs of Windows 10 & have found both Sound Forge Pro 13 Suite & ACID Pro Next to be extremely unstable & unreliable for any serious work.
