I've only found details about running Windows Server on AWS, is it possible to create my own Windows Vista VMWare instance locally and upload the image to AWS?

Good question, we have a distributed team that sometimes travel and want to experiment shared Windows machines on AWS. Saves time to setup and we can access it 24/7. Running VMWare locally takes up too much resources. – dallasclark Sep 5 '12 at 5:12

EC2 does have a facility for importing VMs. Licensing is up to you of course, but that's manageable.
