I have just downloaded Ubuntu 10.04. Once done, I mount the iso onto a virtual cd drive and attempt to run the cd and install Linux as a Windows application.

The problem is each time I mount the iso and doubleclick to start the cd, it just opens as folder. This happens even when I rightclick and select autorun.

Can anyone suggest some help, please? I desperatelty need to get Ubuntu 10.04 installed.

Download the same release of wubi.exe, save it in the same directory as the ISO, then run wubi without mounting the ISO (it's not necessary). You can copy the wubi.exe off the ISO instead of downloading, but if you do download it make sure it's the same release... i.e. from the site you downloaded the ISO from - so it will be here: http://ubuntu.cs.utah.edu/releases/10.04/wubi.exe
