Hmmm, do yo have quotes around the settings (ie AWS_ACCESS_KEY="myid") ?
If so, remove them. Also, are you sure you haven't mixed up your access
key and secret access key in the config? Perhaps you need to swap them.

Well, maybe. Do you recall explicitly creating a new keypair? You do not
automatically get a keypair when you first create an AWS/EC2 account.
You must explicitly create a new keypair either using the AWS Management
Console or running the EC2 command line tool "ec2-add-keypair". The EC2
Getting Started Guide runs you through this. If you don't recall doing
this at some point then the *.pem file(s) you are referring to are
likely your EC2 certificate and private certificate files for your AWS
account which are not the same.

I would recommend logging into the AWS Management Console and checking
to see if you have any keypairs listed. I believe you can download your
existing keys (if any) from the management console as well. If you don't
have any keypairs, it's easy to create a new one and the management
console will prompt you to download the key file. You should then use
the location you download the keypair file to as key_location in a [key]
section. Does that make sense?
