The other package's version is not just too large, it's completely invalid: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa370859(v=vs.85).aspx

Subject: [wix-users] Burn error with large MSI product versions
I have an MSI that I want to package into a burn bootstrapper. My MSI has
UpgradeCode references to a different product. I only want to detect if the
other product is installed or not. When I run my custom BA I see the
following log message:
Error 0x800200a: Failed to convert version: 220.127.116.1108657 to DWORD64 for
Detect failed for package: <my package> ...
So, it looks like the detect phase of my new bootstrapper will fail because
some other product is using a build number that's too large.
What's the recommended workaround here? Use some other mechanism besides
the Upgrade table to detect if the other product is installed?
