My WC Viper was on live for a few weeks then discovered that it would take dead prey if offered in Darkness (i.e. only red light from vivs on).
Also they seems to be a preference for natural coloured prey as opposed to white.
My set up for vipers is pretty simple and is basicly a tub full of moss with a large water bowl all kept in the mid 80's f with high humidity.
Once you get your viper going on defrost they seem to lose most of their inhibitions. I do not handle mine if I can help it and be warned their bite hurts like hell, surprisingly so for such a small snake.
