    Re: windows installer fails everytime

    IF your intention is to install from INSIDE Windows using the Wubi installer, you can still do that using a CD or USB, but you still have to boot into Windows first. If you boot using the CD or USB, it will present options for installing OUTSIDE of Windows, and it will need to modify your partitions to do that.

    In vista and 7 you don't double click wubi.exe to start the install. You need to do right-click, Run As Administrator for maximum permissions. Usually that helps if the problem is not of a different nature.
