When I try to install ubuntu 12.04.2 64 bit using wubi installer. It starts to download the file instead of using already downloaded iso file "ubuntu-12.04.2-desktop-amd64". How to fix it?

Yes, and the answer is given on https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide:

How do I install Wubi on a machine with no Internet connection?

Wubi also works with physical Ubuntu Desktop Live CDs. Wubi.exe is available in the root folder of the CD.

If you do not have a CD, try to find a computer with Internet access, and download both Wubi.exe and the required Desktop ISO from the same location (the release has to match):

For 12.10 use http://releases.ubuntu.com/quantal/
For 12.04 use http://releases.ubuntu.com/precise/
For 11.10 use http://releases.ubuntu.com/oneiric/
For 10.04 use http://releases.ubuntu.com/lucid/ 

Copy both files into the same folder on the machine with no Internet access and run the Wubi executable.

So 2 things you need to do:

  • download the ISO matching the wubi version;
  • put both into the same directory.
