First Data Global Gateway Connect Linkpoint requires the linkpoint.dll to be installed on your server.  When you install Smith Cart the linkpoint.dll is automatically installed in the \bin folder off the root of your DNN install.  The linkpoint dll is 32 bit only and will not work on 64 bit servers.  If you have a 64 bit server you should use the First Data Global Gateway Connect web service gateway option.
