Can't choose deployed web part

I have created a visual web part called "PredatorAudit". I have deployed it to a SharePoint 2010 server using Visual Studio 2010. The problem is that I can't choose it. It is not under Custom or any of the other groups when I try to insert a new web part on a page. I can see the web part in Central Administration - Solution Management, however. It should be in the Custom group because it says <Property Name="Group" Value="Custom" /> in the elements.xml of the web part.
I can choose all the other visual web parts I have created. What could be the problem?

You deployed it as a farm solution?  If so, does it need a feature activated at the site level?

It is a farm solution, not sandbox solution. There is a feature included, but not one that requires site level activation. Normally when I make visual web parts, it is automatically activated as part of the deployment.

For some reason, the SharePoint Administration service wasn't running. After starting the service, it worked.

Starting the service again seemed to do the trick.
