UD-3900 Not working with MacBook Pro Mid-2015 running MacOS 10.15.6

I am not able to get my MacBook Pro Mid-2015 laptop running MacOS 10.15.6 to recognize the UD-3900 docking station. I am able to install the UD-3900 drivers for a MacOS 10.15 version successfully, but when i go to plug the USB to the laptop nothing happens. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the latest version of the UD-3900 drivers (DisplayLink Mac Driver Version 5.2.5), but nothing. Interesting enough, I use the same docking station for my work laptop, but that is a PC, and it works just fine. Looking to get some help here to see what I should be doing to use my docking station with my MacBook pro laptop.
