Default HELP! Reaper won't recognize EZDrummer File path

Hi Everyone,
Help! I've got new computer set everything up but Reaper Won't recognise EZ Drummer file path in Preferences to enable me to insert virtual instrument. I enter below into Preferences without success, re scan an no luck.
I scan for new plugs, still no joy.
Can anyone help?
This is what I have listed in my Prefereneces bar in Reaper FYI:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steinberg\VstPlugins;C:\Program Files\Steinberg\VstPlugins;C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3;C:\ProgramFiles\Toontrack\EZdrummer;C:\ ProgramFiles(x86)\Toontrack\EZdrummer;C:\ProgramFi les\VstPlugins\Toontrack\EZdrummer.dll;C:\ProgramF iles(x86)\VstPlugins\Toontrack\EZdrummer.dll

The File Paths that EZ Drummer gives me when I click on 'Help' tab in EZ Drummer to show file path are:
for 64 bit: C:\ProgramFiles\VstPlugins\Toontrack\EZdrummer.dll
32 Bit are: C:\ProgramFiles(x86)\VstPlugins\Toontrack\EZdrumme r.dll

I've downloaded both 32 and 64 EZdrummer & it was all working on my old laptop, but had latency issues, so now have purchased new Dell laptop and uploaded latest EZ Drummer and Latest Reaper again on my new laptop and can't get Reaper to recognize EZdrummer.
This is my system: Dell Laptop: Processor Intel R Core TM I7 4600 U, CPU at 2.10 GHz, 2.70 GHz, 16 Gig Ram, 64 bit operating system.
I am running latest versions of both EZDrummer2 and Reaper presently.

I tried uninstalling EZ and reinstalling, but Reaper would still not recognise Plugin.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you

PS Does it matter which you down load first i.e. should I uninstall everything again and download reaper first or EZ drummer first? I'm at a loss as to why it's not working.
Thanks again everyone.
PPS I can use EZ Drummer as a Stand alone but really want to be able to use it in Reaper
Thanks again everyone.
