The service advisor with all its features is already installed. In order to install data disks on the hard disk and prevent the service advisor from prompting you for the disk each time you look for a model, you must create the disk images and copy them to the hard disk. Once there you can proceed to mount the images with some program that supports virtual images, in our case we use power iso which we attach in the manual CD. Subsequently once the virtual images are mounted, you must assign the path in the service advisor per file \ preferences in the Data Routes / Virtual Drives tab. This procedure must also be done for historical data disks and translation disks. Remember once the whole procedure is completed, the next step is to place the EDL (interface) so that Windows can recognize and install the EDL drivers, this step is done with the Service Avisor closed.
