I run into problem when tried to install Ubuntu 11.10 on Windows 7 using wubi installer. During installation popup with error similar to this appears:

Permission denied: for more details see the log file

Log file ends with the following error:

12-12 00:13 DEBUG  WindowsBackend: Copying C:\Users\Andrey\AppData\Local\Temp\pyl2DEA.tmp\winboot -> D:\ubuntu\winboot

Issue was written about this here. Is there any workaround around this?
