13.04 is end of life. It has known problems with Wubi. Trying to find Wubi support on any release is a problem. Either try community supported releases or use an alternative method of installing.

comment extending wubi installed ubuntu size
@ngng that's interesting to know. My attitude tends to be overly cautious - because most of Wubi's (post-install) problems come from file system corruption... but yeah I have no reason to suspect that the online resize is invalid as an option on a clean system. Also good to know that the live DVD resize will do it after the online resize failure.

comment extending wubi installed ubuntu size
There's not enough info to know what could have gone wrong here. I have personally never used the online resize because it seems unnecessarily risky. I would try @ngng suggestion.

Try running fsck on the root.disk (not while mounted). It might have failed the resize because of corruption. (Backup data first a good idea).

comment Wubi and Edubuntu?
Seems like a lot of trouble for GCompris since it comes as a windows .exe as well. For an old XP computer you would probably do better with an older release of Edubuntu, but there are working versions of Wubi for modern releases available here. You would need the edubuntu ISO in the same folder as wubi.exe to run offline. For an older release like 12.04 you could just create a DVD and run wubi off that. Should work fine offline although it's been a while since I used it.

comment System not booting up after installing wubi in my windows 7 computer
Wubi is broken and will be discontinued. Only the community supported versions work. Either don't use Wubi or use the ones from here

comment Ubuntu 15.04 Dual-Boot Installation with Windows 8.1
You have to convert the whole disk. I understand some partitioning tools can do it, but you'd do well to back up everything first. Microsoft make it easy to switch to, but not from dynamic drives. Here is a thread that mentions EaseUS as a possible solution.

comment GRUB does not show on startup
No you shouldn't have installed grub to the partition, it has to go on the drive i.e. /dev/sda instead of /dev/sdaX
