I suggest you download the ISO, MD5 test the ISO then burn the ISO to a CD as slowly as possible (or use unetbootin to use a USB stick or SD card).

It sounds like the download failed. When Wubi fails you can look in the logfile which is in the %TEMP% directory, or pastebin it if it's unreadable to you.

If you're having internet connection issues, you can download the desktop ISO yourself (using bittorrent is the easiest) and save the ISO in the same folder as wubi.exe before running.

Can you help with this problem?
