John Deere EDL v2 version has been replaced by JD EDL v3 kit. New EDL v3 kit doesn’t work with Service Advisor 4.2 version.
John Deere EDL v2/v3 drivers are built-in with Service Advisor application. Please do not try to install the driver by with yourself, using the setup files from any not reliable sources may lead to unstable work of your windows OS.
Important Notice. In some cases, after Service Advisor Setup the EDL drivers may be installed not correctly (the yellow exclamation mark near driver name) or even missing. The main reason is your anti-virus application or windows system settings. For this purpose, JD officially released the hotfix that allows reinstalling only the EDL driver. Please contact us for more information.

The most up-to-date versions of the software(The Service Advisor software is not included in the EDL kit; you need to purchase it separately):
JD Service ADVISOR 5.2  AG (Agriculture and Turf division),
JD Service ADVISOR 5.2  CF (Construction and Forestry division).
For notebooks running Windows 7/8.1, we can provide the previous version of the John Deere Service Advisor software (4.2)
John Deere no longer supports the Service Advisor v4.2. The last DATA update has been released in June 2016.
But due to lower system requirements (smaller amount of RAM and HDD space), old Service Advisor may be useful, as it supports all the JD models with up to 2016 release year and works great.
