I try to start up wubi.exe and nothing ever appears on the screen, I even have TaskManager open and the program just quits after a minute (not even). Is this a Windows XP 32-Bit glitch or error?

See if this helps:… (the logfile will be wubi-12.04-rev266.log instead of the one mentioned in that post). If it doesn't help, post back details on what you've tried and what happened. – bcbc May 2 '12 at 20:40

Move the Wubi.exe in the same folder in which the Ubuntu .iso file is. Also make sure that you don't have any other .iso archives in that folder.
