In Windows, if you invoke aws configure and then fill in the credentials and default region name, the process will error like this:


The access key id and secret access key are stored, but the region is not.

@aggieben - Thank you for your post. We need a bit more information to reproduce the problem.

Please provide the output from aws configure list command. :

Does the error still return when using the following get and set commands:

aws configure get region
aws configure set region us-east-1
aws configure get region

Was it installed using the MSI installer, the bundled installer, or other method?
