FWIW, mine has never had a tray icon, you can only see it in the Windows Device Manager window under Ports, unless the driver is wrong. Except while in USB mode to program. Did the cable go bad? Try a different USB Port? A different PC if available. Is the cable firmly seating in the radio jack?

Please try the new release ARC500 V1.30 (basic and pro).
I bought several '20-546' PC cables of ebay sellers and was able to find a workaround for the cables that showed this problem.
In the Download/Upload window make sure to select the 'cable type 2' option before running Virtual Control.
