What is the proper way to configure a linked server from SQL Server 2008r2 to MySQL that will allow inserts?

I have set up the linked server and I can query it and I can update it.  When I try to insert a record I get this message:

OLE DB provider "MSDASQL" for linked server "homeprojectadmin" returned message "[MySQL][ODBC 5.1 Driver][mysqld-5.0.92-log]Commands out of sync; you can't run this command now".
Msg 7343, Level 16, State 2, Line 1
The OLE DB provider "MSDASQL" for linked server "homeprojectadmin" could not INSERT INTO table "[MSDASQL]".

My insert looks like this:
insert INTO OPENQUERY(homeprojectadmin,'select * from home_projects_app_links')
values ('1234','Test Merchant','1234-12','12','https://creditapplication.xyz.com/?program=Home%20Projects&referral=1234-12&merchant=1234','https://uat-creditapplication.xyz.com/?program=Home%20Projects&referral=1234-12&merchant=123','https://1uat-creditapplication.xyz.com/?program=Home%20Projects&referral=1234-12&merchant=1234')

Is it the "Allow Inprocess" property checked or unchecked on the linked server under - Server Objects - Linked Servers - Providers on the MSDASQL? Caution that the setting is for all linked servers on that box so don't just change it.

It's the "Allow Inprocess" property.  It was checked and wasn't working; I unchecked it and it still didn't work.  Do I need to re-starts SQL Services when I change that property?

" Do I need to re-starts SQL Services when I change that property?"

I believe that is way deeper tied to the OS (ODBC and all the rest) and it needs a reboot unfortunately. That's what I have to do usually when my box linking SQL to MySQL and Postgress starts to throw errors.

I unchecked allow inprocess, rebooted and tried the insert.

I get the exact same error.

I think you should put it back whenever you have a chance if it's not done already and could you please check your insert query as I believe it should be like below:

INSERT INTO OPENQUERY(homeprojectadmin,'select * from home_projects_app_links' values ('1234','Test Merchant','1234-12','12','https://creditapplication.xyz.com/?program=Home%20Projects&referral=1234-12&merchant=1234','https://uat-creditapplication.xyz.com/?program=Home%20Projects&referral=1234-12&merchant=123','https://1uat-creditapplication.xyz.com/?program=Home%20Projects&referral=1234-12&merchant=1234'))

If you can please replace the SELECT * with actual column list and I found sometimes you may need to CAST/CONVERT the VALUES to exactly match the target table column datatype as implicit conversion in drivers not always works well.

The syntax you've suggested isn't correct.

I did replace the * with the column list.  Same error.

insert INTO OPENQUERY(homeprojectadmin,'select unique_identifier, merchant_name, promotion_code, plan_code, prod_url, uat_url, test_url from home_projects_app_links')
values ('1234','Melcher Test Merchant','1234-12','12','https://creditapplication.greenskycredit.com/?program=Home%20Projects&referral=1234-12&merchant=1234','https://uat-creditapplication.greenskycredit.com/?program=Home%20Projects&referral=1234-12&merchant=123','https://1uat-creditapplication.greenskycredit.com/?program=Home%20Projects&referral=1234-12&merchant=1234')
