How to create a live usb for Windows in Ubuntu

I know there are a lot of tools to create a bootable usb for ubuntu with windows.

But I'm sure, that there was a possibility in the ubuntu installation directory. I used it some time ago, but I can't find it anymore :(

I think it was a .exe, or a .bat, any case a cmd window has opened, some things were executing and the usb was bootable. And it was in the ubuntu directory!

Is there still the possibility to do that? Does that file exist? I unfortunately can't remember.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

It is not clear what you want to do. Do you want to install Ubuntu from within Windows? Do you want to create a live USB from within Windows, that can be later used to boot or install Ubuntu directly, without booting Windows first? – user68186 Jan 9 '13 at 19:22
It is not clear what you are asking here, please elaborate yout question – That Brazilian Guy Jan 9 '13 at 21:06
See How to create a bootable USB stick on Windows. That explains how to use Windows to write an Ubuntu ISO image to a USB flash drive. You can then boot from the USB flash drive to try and/or install Ubuntu. Then see these installation instructions and, for more information, this guide and this question. The Ubuntu ISO doesn't contain a tool to make a live USB from Windows. – Eliah Kagan Jan 26 '13 at 10:34

You may use Unetbootin.

Download the correct iso file. run Unetbootin and follow instructions.

Thanks a lot, I know that there exists such a tool. But I was sure that there is also such a possibility on the ubuntu image :S – Nagelfar Jan 9 '13 at 18:42
