This error may indicate you do not have the required version of the Windows Installer engine installed- ensure you have the latest version and try again.
If you are authoring an MSI, it may mean that you have an invalid schema value. The error ERROR_INSTALL_PACKAGE_VERSION (1613) means that the version of Windows Installer on the machine does not support the schema of the package. The package schema is indicated by the PID_PAGECOUNT property in the summary information stream of the package. If the schema number of the package is greater than the maximum supported schema by Windows Installer, you will need to update your version of Windows Installer or re-author the package to be compatible with an earlier schema.
The minimum supported schema for all versions of MSI is 30.
The maximum supported schema for each version of MSI is:
Windows Installer 1.0: 100
Windows Installer 1.1: 110
Windows Installer 1.2: 120
Windows Installer 2.0: 200
Windows Installer 3.0: 300
Windows Installer 3.1: 310
