Welcome to LinuxQuestions.

If you have sufficient RAM and reasonable processor speed I would run Ubuntu (or any other linux distribution ) using VirtuaBox instead of Wubi.

Is your Windows 7 32 or 64 bit?

I have not used Wubi in a very long time. Wubi technically is not longer supported but as far as I know it should still work with Windows 7. It is supposed to download the latest version which 18 but only comes in a 64 bit version. You can manually download an older version and put it in the same folder as Wubi instead.

Wubi was discontinued long ago because of Windows secure market share--er--secure boot.

Disk image file of what? Each release of Ubuntu had a wubi.exe file and they changed from release to release so you needed wubi for your specific release. If you go to the ubuntu.releases site at the link below and check the various releases, you won't see wubi after 14.10 release. It is available for 14.04 which is the only still supported release. The use of wubi is discouraged by Canonical/Ubuntu and not supported. It should work with windows 7. Have you read the Wubi Guide, second link below?
