I have no idea what's the problem is. I'm a kind of newbie. I'm using win7 64bit, and installing as an administrator. Please help me out!

11.10 is old and now End of Life. You should use 12.04 or 10.04, the only two releases that still support Wubi. –  Thomas W. Jul 4 '13 at 17:19
    
Or better yet, don't use Wubi at all. Windows 7 doesn't have known problems with installation. –  Braiam Sep 12 '13 at 12:39

You're getting this error:

TaskList: [Errno 13] Permission denied

Indicates you don't have adequate permissions in the application. Make sure you're running Wubi as an Administrator

I did that. But nothing happened. It's getting stuck while installing everytime. –  Taksh Sharma Mar 31 '12 at 16:26

The CD is being rejected. Most likely it's a bad burn, or in some cases an incompatible optical drive. Instead, place the desktop CD ISO in the same folder as wubi.exe and run wubi from there. It will find the ISO and use it.

Make sure you remove the CD from the drive or it will use it instead and fail.

I tried that too. no good to me. when i reboot and try to use ubuntu it shows no root filesystem found. please help me out. it seems as if windows has locked some part of hard drive so that nothing can be written. i feel so. –  Taksh Sharma Apr 2 '12 at 3:41
    
Well that's a different, unrelated issue. I'll find some links for that. –  bcbc Apr 2 '12 at 4:24
    
This link has some ways to figure out the cause of this error (when using wubi): answers.launchpad.net/wubi/+question/188253 –  bcbc Apr 2 '12 at 4:38
