Message Error : "App Closed ChildInstall"
I hope everyone read this solution ................... this problem always show with S60 newer series , expecially on N6600 , N6630 , N7610 , N6620.

This error message mean , the installer files is missing , become hide state , corruption or have broken binarry code file. Expecially when the file installer came from BT tranfer file.

If Phone have this problem , the happening is :
1. File Installer (is BT Message Files) can not be delete, every time u want to delete message show is the file is using/not exist.
2. App can not be install, every time u try to install message show like above.

The Solution
1. Close all app/game that still run.
2. Run app for File Browser (like SeleQ , System Explorer , Profi File etc).
3. Find the installer file (BT Message) on folder ..\system\mail\00001001_S\[Mail Root -> Hex 0 - F]\[BT Message Folder ended by 'F' alpanameurik]\[BT Message File]
Note = Dont forget to set app file setting to show hiden file.
4. After u find it , delete that file (BT Message)
5. To make sure the file installer gone , check ur message inbox. If u delete the right file , that BT Message will be gone.
