I did not find anything there that helps. I am trying to fill out the screen correctly.

Did you check to see if the "allow in process" has been checked?

I use SQL 2008 so it may be the same

Using Management Studio,
expand linked servers,
expand providers
right click on your provider,
check Allow inprocess

Hope this helps...
