You need to allow access to your DocumentRoot. Put:

  <Directory "e:/YellowTipWS/htdocs">
        Allow from all

Before your VH declarations (then, since one docroot is a subdir of the
other, it will apply to both of them). Or (to be more explicit) put such
a block inside each VH and make the path in the <Directory> argument the
same as the docroot.

Read the docs again for <Directory> and "Allow" and try to understand
what they do. Also, sort out your bizarre mixture of foward and trailing
slashes in path names - pick one convention and stick to it. Same for
mixture of upper and lower case for drive letters...
