Windows installer does not work for version 13.04 or later. – user68186 Jul 17 '13 at 14:11

If you want to install Wubi for running Ubuntu in Windows, then install Ubuntu 12.04 because Wubi is not supported for Ubuntu 13.04. Also Ubuntu 12.04 has the advantage of being a Long Term Support release that is supported by updates until April, 2017. The Windows installer for Wubi, called wubi.exe, is a 2.4MB file that you can download from the website.
