Can I install 12.04 inside Windows?

First, thanks for taking time to answer my question.

My question is that I have ubuntu 12.04 with me but no Wubi is in there..its asking me to do a regular Ubuntu installation instead of Wubi installation in my windows.

So I only need the Wubi not the Ubuntu installation files..How do I make sure that Wubi installation file I will download form Ubuntu.com will not initiate a download of Ubuntu 12.04 again as I already have the installation ISO with me and Direct Wubi to use that ISO to install Ubuntu alongside Windows?

You can download Wubi from here.
Also have a look at installation instructions.

Thanks..but my questions remains same that How I make sure that Wubi will not download Ubuntu 12.04 because I have Ubuntu 12.04 ISO with me which does not have Wubi (Ubuntu installation in windows). when I execute the Wubi from Windows it is not giving me option to install Ubuntu alongside Windows..its giving me only one Option "Demo and Full installation" the Demo is the Ubuntu Demo from CD/USB ..not Wubi Ubuntu installation in Windows. So I only need Wubi installation which will help me to install Ubuntu alongside windows..not the Wubi which will start downloading the Ubuntu 12.04 again –  WoodenPaw Sep 5 '12 at 17:25
    
Put the .iso in the same directory (folder) as wubi.exe –  bodhi.zazen Sep 5 '12 at 17:38
    
Also make sure that your Wubi version matches with your Ubuntu Version. –  IgnitE Sep 5 '12 at 17:39
    
Hi...I extracted the Ubuntu from ISO and downloaded the Wubi and kept it in the same folder where Ubuntu was extracted form ISO and still Wubi trying to download Ubuntu 12.04. One more thing, is there a different installation file for Intel processor and AMD processor as I have Intel processor and the Ubuntu installation file says "ubuntu-12.04-desktop-amd64". Thanks for the answers so far and thanks in advance for future help & answers. –  WoodenPaw Sep 5 '12 at 18:18
    
Don't extract the iso and then try running Wubi. –  IgnitE Sep 5 '12 at 18:22

You need to run the wubi exe that is on the CD/USB from within Windows in order to get a Wubi install. If you run the CD/LiveUSB after restarting the system, it will not give you the option to install inside Windows.

well thats what I am trying to say the when I execute the Wubi from Windows it is not giving me option to install Ubuntu alongside Windows..its giving me only one Option "Demo and Full installation" the Demo is the Ubuntu Demo from CD/USB ..not Wubi Ubuntu installation in Windows....So I only need Wubi installation which will help me to install Ubuntu alongside windows..not the Wubi which will start downloading the Ubuntu 12.04 again as I already have the Ubuntu ISO with me. –  WoodenPaw Sep 5 '12 at 17:11
    
@WoodenPaw: is there any reason you do not want to install Ubuntu the normal way? You would be better off doing that and you can still keep Windows. –  RolandiXor Sep 5 '12 at 17:31
    
I do not have CD/DVD & USB drive with me and I have no plan in 1 month to purchase it and I am dying to get my hand on new Ubuntu..lol..so as I previously installed and used Ubuntu "natty" through Wubi so I was expecting the same thing with 12.04. –  WoodenPaw Sep 5 '12 at 18:25
