Error setting up Vagrant with VirtualBox in PyCharm under OS X 10.10

When setting up the remote interpreter and selecting Vagrant, I get the following error in PyCharm:

Can't Get Vagrant Settings: [0;31mThe provider 'virtualbox' that was requested to back the machine 'default' is reporting that it isn't usable on this system. The reason is shown bellow: Vagrant could not detect VirtualBox! Make sure VirtualBox is properly installed. Vagrant uses the `VBoxManage` binary that ships with VirtualBox, and requires this to be available on the PATH. If VirtualBox is installed, please find the `VBoxManage` binary and add it to the PATH environment variable.[0m


Now, from a terminal, everything works. I can do 'up' and ssh into the VM without issues. Ports are forwarded as well as local files. So the issue is only in PyCharm. I have installed Java 1.8

PATH is: /usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin

which VBoxManage: /usr/local/bin/VBoxManage and works in terminal.

Note that this is a fresh install of OS X done this morning.
Vagrant version is 1.7.3, VirtualBox is 4.3.30 and PyCharm is 4.5.3

Answer

Turns out, this problem is a known bug in PyCharm.

Until they fix it, you can get around the problem by launching PyCharm from a terminal window with the charm command.

Vagrant 1.7.3 and VirtualBox 4.3.30 under Pycharm 4.5: Path issue
