Is there a way to run an Amazon EC2 AMI image in Windows? I'd like to be able to do some testing and configuration locally. I'm looking for something like Virtual PC.

If you are creating your AMI from scratch, you can do it with VMware. but if you want to use an existing AMI, it will be a little tricky. You will have to download and unpack an AMI into a VM image, then add a kernel then boot it.

Note: AMIs might be encrypted.
