I assume that you have download and installed the latest version of Genymotion which is 2.5.4
If this is your case, I had the same problem and the following worked for me:

The version 2.5.4 does NOTcreate (reg.exe) file for you inside the folder (\Genymobile\Genymotion) which I think needed for the virtualbox to get it work ...  (this point still not clear for me)

What I did is downloading and installing the previous version 2.5.3 (with virtualbox installer to make sure of the compatibility).
This is the link to version 2.5.3 (

Uninstall the VirtualBox and Genymotion you have and just download and install genymotion-2.5.3 with the virtualbox installer
