The "Installation size" options lets you decide the amount of space you want to "give up" for WUBI. That is the space wubi's Ubuntu install is able to use. Wubi creates a disk image (loopmounted device) on your host system in/on which Ubuntu is installed. This can be compared to a kind of "safe partition" on your system.

Right click on the exe file and select properties. Then check "Allow executing as program" in the Permissions tab. Try it works –  Aatish Sai Oct 25 '13 at 12:03
