I tried to install Ubuntu on my Windows 7 64-bit PC and encountered multiple error screens. It finally showed an error with
Without the log file it's not possible to identify the exact cause of the problem.
However, the easiest way to install Wubi is to download wubi.exe and the desktop CD ISO yourself and save them both in the same directory on your harddrive. e.g. the 11.10 64-bit desktop CD ISO and the 11.10 wubi.exe
Then remove all Ubuntu USB and CDs from the computer (any ISO on the root of a drive e.g. E:\ as well). This is important. Now run that wubi.exe
Some software will associate itself with the .iso extension and identify the ISO as an archive or offer to do some default action. Just select to save the ISO. Or right click on the link and select "Save link as" to bypass the software. If you go direct to http://releases.ubuntu.com/11.10/ there are other download options e.g. the .torrent extension which will open up in your bit torrent client. It doesn't matter where you save the ISO as long as it's in the same place as the wubi.exe of the same release.
Did you try Wubi straight from the Ubuntu website AND make sure to pick an installation of above 15 gig? The Wubi installer has a little bit of difficulty determining bit versions, and while not normally a problem for 64 bit computers the "program" nature of Wubi doesnt always work well running 32 on a 64 bit machine. Otherwise anytime I've encountered that error (usually from XP however) i fixed it running a live USB (instead of live CD) and installing via the icon in the live USB system.
Hope this helps bro.
