It may be you're launching in a region you haven't launched in before - apparently new accounts may be restricted to 3 regions and you can get this error if you try to use a 4th.

Either way, please contact them on that email address as suggested or use AWS Support from your console (or - even with Basic support you can raise an Account case like this.

  • Thank you for my question replay but you can see my given picture shows US East (N. Virginia) region also I am trying the other 2 regions US West (Oregon) and US East (Ohio) show the same ERROR.

  • What do you mean "question replay"? How would I know from your question you haven't already launched EC2 instances in 3 other regions - you know there are over 30 regions, right? Why down-vote someone with a valid suggestion, and who is just trying to help you?
