Ubuntu – Not able to install Ubuntu 12.04 using wubi


I am trying to install Ubuntu 12.04 in my windows machine using Wubi. It's not the first time I am trying to install using Wubi, I have done that before but I am facing some issues this time…

I have downloaded ubuntu-12.04.4-desktop-amd64.iso(in zip) from the Ubuntu's website.

enter image description here
After extracting all the files when I am trying to run wubi.. it's giving an error :

without internet connection

With my internet connection on, wubi downloads a file..

enter image description here

But at the end of downloading, this gives "Permission Denied" error.

I also searched a lot, and tried different ways like putting the latest wubi in the folder. But nothing worked for me.. Any suggestion ??

A question here, I have already downloaded iso zip but wubi still searching for another disc image file.Doesn't it come in the iso zip files??

Donwload Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS 32bit iso image, and after that download wubi installer, place both files in the same folder on your desktop or somewhere else and run wubi.exe with your Internet connection down. Don't forget that you cannot allocate more than 30GB for Ubuntu installation when using wubi installer. It should work fine. You can use wubi installer in the same manner to install inside windows Xubuntu 12.04.4 and also Lubuntu 12.04.4 (better choice for older machines than Ubuntu 12.04.4 which runs in a Gnome session and can create lots of issues after first system upgrade and also after you update your video driver).
