Exclamation VirtualBox and Genymotion issue

I have:

1. VirtualBox 4.3.15.r95713
2. Windows 7 64bit and
3. Genymotion 2.2.2

When I try to run genymoton I get following error:

 Unable to load VirtualBox engine.
    Unable to load VirtualBox engine.<br><br>Make sure that you have installed it correctly before starting Genymotion.<br><br>For more information, refer to <a href=''><font color='#FFF'></font></a><br><br>Genymotion logs archive has been generated in: C:/Users/Jalle/<br><a href=''><font color='#FFF'>For more help, contact our customer service.</font></a>
and error log shows
    kol 29 09:02:36 [Genymotion] [Error] "Fail to load vboxmanage plugin from C:/Program Files/Genymobile/Genymotion/plugins/" 
    kol 29 09:02:36 [Genymotion] [Error] VM Engine failed to load

Genymotion gave me same error when I re-installed VirtualBox.
Turns out that the 1st time VirtualBox was installed in: C:\Program Files\Oracle VM VirtualBox and this was in registry (for genymotion VBoxPath)
and 2nd time it was installed in "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox".
So, to fix this I had to change the path in registry at path:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Genymobile\Genymotion\ for value "VBoxPath" to: "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\\VBoxManage.exe"
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Oracle\VirtualBox for value "InstallDir" to: "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\"
Once I set the correct path and logged off and logged back on, it started working again.
Log off/log on or reboot is required to reload the registry.
genymotion, virtualbox
