I downloaded the ubuntu 12.04 source from official ubuntu site and after I try to install it by selecting the wubi.exe ,after the selecting the disk space and that ,it downloading " amd64.tar.xz " file.It shows remaining time approximately 17h 30m ,and this process continues since last 2 hours... I downloaded and mounted the iso to install the 64 bit wubi, but every time I run it it gets stuck on "Downloading ubuntu-12.04.2-wubi-amd64.tar.xz . And yeah,there is nothing wrong with internet connection

What should I do? Should I stop the installation process and leave it as it is..?

See what the installation is stuck on? Are you connected to (a slow) Internet? If yes it may be downloading the language packs; just disconnect from the Internet. –  AliNa Sep 2 '13 at 17:10

its because its downloading some updates...try disconnecting you internet and continue your installation or why don't you try installing via USB making a boo-table Ubuntu USB drive...
