Problem assigning Elastic IP to VPC instances

Hello all,

I'm currently experiencing an issue assigning an Elastic IP address to any instances running in our VPC through the ylastic interface. I don't seem to have this problem when I perform the same action through the regular AWS website management console. If I attempt to assign a free IP address to one of our instances I get one of the following two error messages depending on how I do it:

Error associating elastic IP with instance: InvalidInstanceID: The instance 'i-c23172b8' belongs to a VPC. (I get this error in the EC2 section)

You cannot associate this elastic ip address as you do not have any VPC instances running in Virginia. (I get this error in the VPC section)

I've checked over and over again, and both the EIP and the instance itself are in Virginia. They are both assigned to the VPC. I've tried this with different EIPs and instances with the same result. Like I said, I was able to do this through the standard AWS web management console so I believe it may be a bug or maybe I'm doing something incorrectly in the ylastic interface.

Thanks in advance for any help.
