John Deere Service Advisor 4 Heavy Duty Truck Scanner on a machine with win 10 64bit:

1/you must have enough disk space to download the full set of February 2016 data base (52Gb); it comes with seven iso images and the SA4.0 image and a February 2015 update which you don’t need and of course the activator.

2/use an iso mounter software to mount the SA4.0 image to a virtual drive.

3/browse to the setup file in your virtual drive and run it as administrator

follow the steps (it will prompt for a username and password use those of your windows user account if you’re under 7-8 or 10 windows version)

it will take a while! don’t turn off the computer and don’t worry about the incompatibility messages that windows will show you during the installation process specially for the SQL 2005 server installation.

4/after completing the installation of the SA4.0 reboot the computer and set back the system time to mars 2016.

5/mount the first iso image of the data discs to a virtual drive, browse the sauce folder and run setup file as administrator; wait for it to complete the installation it will launch the SA 4.2.005 at this step you may have a message that the SA 4.2.005 is not capable of launching the search engine don’t worry close it and go to task manager (ctr+alt+sup)

click on services and look for the LightweightIDOL service if it’s stopped than run it.

6/run the activator as administrator and activate the Service Advisor; don’t use the prolongation tool at this step!.

7/now go to the task manager again and look for the SAupdater service and disable it.

8/re-open the Service Advisor, click the accept button for the license agreement, and configure the path for the data access you can use the mapping for a virtual drive choice to map each data disc image to a virtual drive it will take more than an hour to load all the data disk.

it will ask you for scheduling the update choose the end of the week and create the task.

9/Now close the SA, use the activator again but this time just use the prolongation tool choose 9000 days or whatever you want.

10/Look for the task scheduler and run it, choose the SAupdate task and modify the time for the task to begin to 2030 or whatever you want.

11/reboot the computer and set back the time machine to the actual time, launch SA and everything must work ok.

if you have any trouble than you messed something just clean up and reinstall.

(Solved) John Deere Service Advisor Search Engine Error

This is for anyone when he/she runs the John Deere Service Advisor heavy duty diagnostic software, the system appears error message that the search engine module can not be loaded and then the program ends.


Optional solutions:

Solution 1:
Run as system administrator, roll back pc date reactivate using activator Then roll date back to normal date if error still renew once again. Been working for me so far.
Note that, don’t know how long it stay working but works im sure someone will have solution for it soon.
Also advice if doing fresh install roll back the date on pc do the install after then install and activations have been done.
Go to task manager look for the service adviser on have it start its tasks in 2030 :save and then reset your pc date should be good for while

Solution 2:
if you set a date before the lightweightidol license expired, start the lightweightidol service, set the real date and start Advisor, it works.

Solution 3:
start advisor. when error comes with “search engine” Close John Deere SA. afterwards set your PC date to feburary 2015. start SA again (run as administrator). it now comes with error on licence. close SA Again. set pc date back to normal. run SA Again. now it Works.

Solution 4:
The search engine error can be solved.
Set back the date, before the expiry date found in Service ADVISOR\SUIR\license.log (august 14 in my case). Start LightweightIDOL service. Set the real date, and Advisor working again.
I made a batch file to simplify it. To make it work Control Panel/Regional/short date format have to be yyyy-mm-dd or you have to modify batch. Maybe you have to modify ServiceADVISOR.exe path too in the batch. Have to run as administrator.

Solution 5:
I have had the same error with ssearch engine connection in JD SA.
reinstalled it twice, changed system date back and forward, run activator. No result for me.
But actually I found the solution for this issue.
Just need to install july update from the post
And the error disappeared.
newer data discs (2016/02)

Solution 6:
back date to 08.10.16
install JD SA, restart, activate, mount latest disk you have (05.2016) and install update, for finish get license error, ignore and close, set actualy date, run JD SA -> works fine, install july update testing today on 3 laptops (Windows 7 and 10)

On a side note: procedure about turning off the updates

don’t know how long it stay working but works im sure someone will have solution for it soon.

Also advice if doing fresh install roll back the date on pc do the install after then install and activations have been done.
goto task manager look for the service adviser on have it start its tasks in 2030 :save and then reset your pc date should be good for while Smile (SO TURN IT OFF IN TASKMANAGER SO IT STARTS 20 30 YEARS FROM NOW!!)

Fresh new installations also work but can be much more complicated sure a patch would be much easier. But it can be done with out a patch so far

In taskmanager I don’t stop any service just put service advisor updater to 2030 to start
also makes sure eculp.ini configurator reads like this
