http://ubuntuforums.org – First time poster here. I am trying to run Ubuntu on Windows 7 64-bit using Wubi. On my first couple of tries it gave me the "Extraction failed with code: 2". Then I manually downloaded the iso ubuntu-12.04.1-desktop-i386.iso (choosing the 64-bit version from the dropdown) to my desktop where the wubi.exe is. I'm still having the same issue. It ignores the ISO and tries to download the ubuntu-12.04.1-wubi-amd64.tar.xz file. Thanks for any help you can offer. Here's the contents of the wubi-12.04-rev269.log: 09-24 22:45 INFO root: === wubi 12.04 rev269 === 09-24 22:45 DEBUG ro (Hardware)
