That is exactly my problem using Windows 10 Pro.  Below 33% magnification, I will see a washed out image.  This bug only happens with Viveza 2.  All the other Nik tools work flawlessly.  I feel really bad about this problem and Customer Service at Affinity Photo won't respond.  This does not happen with Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop.

I can confirm that I have exactly the same issue with Viveza 2. Below 33% the image is totally de-saturated. This is with the latest version of the Nik Collection (1.1)

I bought the Dx0 Nik Plugins v1.1 for £30 during their Black Friday sale but I can confirm that Viveza in new version doesn't work with Affinity Photo 1.6.5.123 or the 1.7 Beta. I get same washed up colours as stated by others in this thread.

In any case I ran some tests and this is what I found.

Running the Viveza plugin from Affinity Photo - pictures from my Nikon D7000 all affected - NEF, JPEG. With my Canon S50 - CRW affected but JPEG ok. NOTE - When I magnify view to 100% in Viveza2 colours are ok in main viewer but not in Navigator. This points to image size as my Canon S50 produces smaller JPEG images.

I tried from other editors i.e. Adobe PS6 and Nikon View NX-i/Captur NX-D, Viveza works as expected.

Would be great if Serif can fix this as this one plugin is stoping me from ditching the other editors from my work flow. By the way for anyone interested my current workflow is to use ViewNX-i then run Capture NX-D for RAW. Convert to tiff 16bit and return to ViewNX-i. This process retains the non distructive changes made to my RAW file. I then run Nik plugins from ViewNX-i on the newly created tiff file.

Afterwards I go into Affinity for remainder but lately I have been using Adobe PS6 because of Viveza issue.

I really want to go from Capture NX-D into Affinity and use Nik plugins from there.
