I'm following the steps to upload an image here:
http://docs.aws.amazon.com/vm-import/latest/userguide/import-vm-image.html

When I run the following command:
aws iam create-role --role-name vmimport --assume-role-policy-document file://trust-policy.json

I get this error:
H:\>aws iam create-role --role-name vmimport --assume-role-policy-document C:\Users\Stuart.Saxby\Desktop\trust-policy.json
An error occurred (MalformedPolicyDocument) when calling the CreateRole operation: This policy contains invalid Json


I've copied the JSON exactly and verified it in a JSON validator.  Any ideas on how I can troubleshoot this?
