    Trouble installing v11.10

    I have attempted to install this several times with no success. I keep getting an error message that says "Permissions Denied" and then it tells me, for more info. see the following log file, which is in a nonexistent path. Needless to say, I am at a loss, currently. Can anyone help me out with this please ?

    Wubi is good as a stepping stone to ubuntu linux and will give you a taste of Ubuntu .However when you start feeling comfortable , you may do a normal installation .

    That nonexistent path exists and you can get there with this shortcut (environment variable): %TEMP%
    If you navigate step by step you'll fail as some parts are hidden by windows (default setting).

    I believe until now you have played with the live Ubuntu cd/usb in windoes environment .Had you by any chance given a try booting off from the CD , it will let you play with options like Try Ubuntu / Install Ubuntu .
    What error exactly yoyu are getting when you try to boot from the CD , can you please post ?

    when installing WUbi when you get the error just do a reboot and wubi will continue to set up and boot..

    I installed 3x on this lap top with wubi and everytime the same error and the install is working fine, for some reason the wubi installer can not bring up the reboot now notice ..

    in finding that the wubi install is going strong im sure a full install would be way better, it is a bit resistant to upgrade to 12.04 beta 2 but finally got info that got it to work on the AMD 64bit with the AMD ati video card today ..

    if you give your self a big enough partition to play on it it could run this way for a long while , most important thing to remember is don't be afraid to do things don't get upset or frustrated if things go wrong while learning and you need to re-install thats what learning is all about

    That's true, but only if it's bug 862003. There are other possible reasons for failure where that won't work.
