I'm trying to use AWS CLI, using Powershell on a virtual server, but I cannot use the configure command correctly. What am I doing wrong?

We installed AWS CLI 2.4.20 on a Windows 2012 server. We allow outbound on 80 and 443. I have the credentials I need to enter for the configuration, but when I enter "aws configure", the PowerShell cursor just blinks at me. I am running PS in administrator mode as well. Here is the debug results if this helps. Did I miss a step. I have looked at all the online AWS documentation for configuring AWS CLI and have watched a couple of videos. It does not look like it should be this difficult.

What does aws --version output? If I was to guess, I'd check the python version running which should be at least 3.8.x or higher.
