DAC3161EVM: Cannot read back registers from DAC3161EVM

Part Number: DAC3161EVM
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: DAC3161

We planned on using the DAC3161 and purchased the DAC3161 EVM to test out the part. After following the instructions shown in, we were able to connect to the EVM. We are using a 500MHz 16dBm sinewave at J9. We are not able to read any registers values from the DAC though we do see CDC620005 Register values ( we do send the data first through the gui) . Shouldn't this be possible? See the attached screen shots

Below this is what I wrote to the DAC (before the read)  - what I expected to get back from the read
