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:

Code:
 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='https://cloud.genymotion.com/page/faq/#vbox'><font color='#FFF'>https://cloud.genymotion.com/page/faq/#vbox</font></a><br><br>Genymotion logs archive has been generated in: C:/Users/Jalle/genymotion-log.zip<br><a href='https://cloud.genymotion.com/page/support/'><font color='#FFF'>For more help, contact our customer service.</font></a>
and error log shows
Code:
    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 
    kol 29 09:02:36 [Genymotion] [Error] Unable to find VM Engine. Plugin loading aborted. 
    kol 29 09:02:36 [Genymotion] [Debug] [LogCollector] VM engine not available
also I setup VBox - NEtwork - HostOnly adapter like this:
Code:
    ipv4 address: 192.168.56.1
    Net mask: 255.255.255.0
    DHCP
    192.168.56.100
    255.255.255.0
    192.168.56.101
    192.168.56.254
but still having same error:
So, how do i make latest VBox and Ganymotion run together ?

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"
and
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.

Why the double backslash in front of VBoxManage.exe?
