It looks like your Companion 5's headphone jack is wired for headphones only and is not a combination headphone/microphone jack. That would explain why you get audio but the microphone doesn't work.

The headphones themselves won't show up in Windows either; Windows is only going to see the Companion 5 and then the Companion 5 internally pipes audio to the headset instead of the speakers.
