What is the difference between the HMC833 evaluation tool software engineering mode and release mode?

Having a lot of trouble with strong frequency offsets (1940 MHz actual measured with spec instead of 2000MHz desired and displayed in eval software, 2920 MHz actual measured with spec instead of 3000MHz desired and displayed in eval software) and no locking at all after getting a brand new HMC833 evalaution board I am wondering if the error may be caused due to the fact I am running the evaluation tool software in release mode as there is no pwd for the enineering mode available.

Could  that be the case?

Is there any buildt in self test of the eval board to ensure the HW is not broken?

Tnx in advance

Sven
