With cable plugged into the USB port, look in device manager and find the USB to serial port assigned by your Windows OS by expanding the + next to Ports (COM & LPT).

Run ARC and match this port by clicking on Download, select port then the red X.
Click Virtual button.

Also make sure that you installed the USB cable driver. The scanner comes with a CD-ROM and the USB cable driver can be found on that CD-ROM. This driver must be installed before connecting the cable else ARC500 can't 'talk' with the scanner.
