Problem running Genymotion: 'Unable to load VirtualBox engine' error encountered
I downloaded the Genymotion installer for Windows. I installed both Genymotion and Oracle VirtualBox via the installer. I received messages that both programs were successfully installed. I successfully opened VirtualBox, then tried opening Genymotion, only to encounter an error message saying 'Unable to load VirtualBox engine'. I have tried reopening Genymotion and encountered the same message.
If it helps, I am currently using a Lenovo Yoga running Windows 8.1 One other important thing to note is that quite some time back I tried using VirtualBox to start a Windows Phone emulator and similarly failed. Is there anyway to fix the Genymotion error I encountered? If so, how?
Also, if somehow my laptop just refuses to run Genymotion, is learning how to make Android apps using an actual phone as your only way to test apps a feasible way of learning? I say this because I only downloaded Genymotion in the first place because my Android Studio emulator was running incredibly slow and ran into 'System process isn't responding' errors all over the place.
Sorry for the long post, and thanks a bunch in advance for the help.
