Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I downloaded ubuntu-14.04.1-desktop-amd64 and followed instructions to install onto my PC with 4GB RAM and 114 GB free disk space running Wins 7 Professional. After I ran the wubi.exe installation program, it reported an permission denied error and I couldn't find the log file in:


There's no such directory path. I have tried the 32-bit version but faced the same error.

Try installing without WUBI. – Akiva Aug 12 '14 at 2:52
There is no wubi.exe for 14.04.1 (so it would try to download 14.04 anyway). The permission denied could be for other reasons though - so look in that log file you think doesn't exist - it does but part of the path is hidden by windows. Either open the whole thing in notepad as you have written it, or go to the %TEMP% directory. Maybe pastebin it. But actually @Akiva is correct. Better not to use Wubi these days. – bcbc Aug 13 '14 at 1:51
